To Command, To Obey

If you command wisely, you’ll be obeyed cheerfully.
– Thomas Fuller

Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof…
…Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
– Peter (I Peter 5:2-3)

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
– The author of Hebrews (13:17)

    Love how this hints back to the Lord’s command, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”
