Look up Romans 13:1-5 and Ephesians 6:1. One part of respecting authority is knowing how to properly address them. If you don’t know what to address them as, ask them what they prefer. Another part of respecting authority is simply respecting their time. Even Jesus left at times to rest or pray. Our authority is human who wants alone time as well. Our authority probably also has a family who want to spend time with them as well. If they are on vacation, or off the clock, let them enjoy their time. Please keep in mind that since they are human, they will occasionally have a bad day and won’t be able to deal with major issues. Normally those issues can wait a day or two.
Romans 13:1-5. Everyone is under someone’s authority and they are over us because God put them there. In verse five, we are to obey authority to avoid wrath, for our conscience sake, and simply because it is Biblical.
Look up 1 Samuel 16:1-7 and Isaiah 55:8-13. While we figure out and do what God wants us to do, keep in mind that what He wants may not be what we would think is best. Pray, seek counsel, and just do what He wants.
Look up 1 Samuel 16:1-7. Sometimes God is trying to show us what He wants us to do by simply saying no a few times to what we want. What may seem best is not always right. Many times a no is just supposed to mean wait. God will make us wait until He is ready to say yes to what is best for us. No matter how long we wait, His will is still the best.
Look up 1 Samuel 16:1-7. Samuel was listening to God and went to go annoint the next king. He was in the right place at the right time with the right people, but God still told him no seven times. Sometimes finding the will of God is simply finding out what it’s not.
