Meditation for the Week

1663742.jpgLoyal to Country – The first of the Five Codes of Tang Soo Do. Irrespective of whether one is a born citizen, or whether citizenship is gained later in life – having loyalty to country allows one to truly appreciate and love one’s homeland.
.   Rebellion and treachery against a just government have always led to crippled societies. This is because rebellion or acting against the state is a threat to the peace and security of a nation. Indeed, where internal rebellion or opposition occurs, then it fans the flames of external opposition and encourages outsiders to take advantage of the internal disorder. We have seen this happen throughout history causing the destabilization of nations. Hence, the consequences of disloyalty to one’s nation can be far-reaching and extreme.
.    It is important that this relationship is symbiotic and mutually respectful. Governments should put policies in place that establish and protect mutual respect. Any action that hurts the sentiments of others or causes any type of harm should be avoided.

Hear the word of God through the Apostle Paul in Romans 13:1-7

1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.
