“We must obey God rather than men.” - Acts 5:29
Obeying God is like obeying our conscience. Businessmen and politicians often sell their soul and conscience for money and power. Religious leaders often claim to have all the answers and play God when they know only half at best. We should not give our absolute trust to any human being. Men are to be loved, not to be trusted. No human beings deserve our absolute trust. Our absolute loyalty is reserved for God only.
Dear Lord, we pray for justice and peace in our society. Help us to overcome our selfishness and extend our love and kindness to fellow human beings. Amen.
