(KJV.) 1 TIMOTHY 6:1-2
(1) Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.
(2) And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.
GUESS WHO IS WATCHING?
Case in point, Jesus Christ has authority over every establishment on planet earth; and regardless of what motives these establishments may have, secular or religious motives, all establishments on earth and heavenly places belongs to him; and we are workers joined together with our authorities, collectively, work as one body under Jesus Christ, the master of all masters; and we are working in these worldly establishments, for glorification of our Father in heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for it is written in the book of Psalm 75:3-5, "The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah. I said unto the fool, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. "; therefore, as believers, let us honor the name of our Father, his policies and procedures in the secular world, as well as faith establishments, to avoid slandering against our religious beliefs and who we are in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Brethren, humility pays, for it is written in the book of Proverbs 22:4, "By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life."; when we humble ourselves to authorities, in the eyes of our Father, we reverence him, and he is delighted, blesses, rewards, shows favors and grants good health and long life; at times, our authorities may be believers from the same faith, if we notice such authorities, let us be cooperative, no matter how difficult they may be, support them with prayers, in areas where they are weak, look up for their progress and not resent them, or work against them; for they are branches within the body of Jesus Christ, to which we belong; and dedicate ourselves, be helpful, supportive; for they are in places of authorities, fulfilling the will of our Father, and are cherish by him as partners in the faith of his righteousness, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ in life everlasting.
Dearly beloved, the word of our Father is bitter and sweet at the same time; if we read it, meditate on it, adhere to it; we can never go wrong in life, though we may dislike some of his instructions, it is for our own good, and if we pray to the Holy Spirit for his help to walk in obedience to his words, he will enlighten our ways in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior into life everlasting. Amen and Amen!
