Titus 3:1 NASB "Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed,"As we left the boss's office, I could tell that what he asked us to do wasn't sitting well with my co-workers. Being the new guy on the crew, I kept my mouth shut as the others began to complain about the work we were asked to do! Today's verse speaks about reminding ourselves about being subject to those in authority, to be obedient and ready for every good deed! Having been out of a work for a while, getting this job was a blessing and I wasn't going to do anything to lose it so when the boss asked us to do a rather hard, difficult, dirty job, I was ready and willing. Some of the "old timers" began to complain that the work was beneath them and that they shouldn't have to do it! As I began to do the work, others started joining in and before long, all the workers were doing what the boss asked of us. Having the right perspective about those in authority can make the difference between being ready for every good deed or spending our time complaining! The question is what's our perspective when called upon by God to do His Work?! peace, tom
