1 Timothy 2:1-8, Psalm 28, Luke 7:1-10

In love with people

Those in authority have a difficult and lonely job. Roman dealings with Jesus were often harsh, but this centurion has the humility and insight not only to recognise the power and authority of Jesus, but to plead for his servant’s healing. Jesus instantly perceives his compassion. Pray for your MP, mayor, teacher or CEO irrespective of your feelings towards them. We are bombarded with calls to defy authority. Let our love for Jesus – the Lover of people – determine our dealings with our leaders.
