    I see a lot of threads with President Obama's name made into other names. I'm not going to point fingers but are we not to respect our leaders?

    1 Peter 2 tells us:

    "13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor."

    Are we showing honor to the office of the president? Are we doing good so that we can put to silence the ignorance of foolish people? Are we honoring God in our speech?

    Think and pray on it.

    Thank you.
