I read I Peter 2 in my daily Bible reading last week. I’ve probably read it hundreds of times during my life. How come this never soaked in before? I always saw “honor the king”. I saw “love the brotherhood”. I saw “fear God”. But somehow I had never really taken in the first phrase of the verse:
Wow. Chew on THAT for a while.
I Peter 2:17 (ESV): Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
