Titus 3:1…”Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good.” Spiritual privileges do not make void or weaken, but confirm our civil duties. Being subject to rulers and authorities includes our speech, therefore our words need to demonstrate respect, even to those rulers with whom we disagree. Good words are not enough without good works. So, we are to show meekness on all occasions, not toward friends only, but to all men, though with wisdom, James 3:13. Also, to be ready to do whatever is good, we must be constantly praying, because if left to our own interests and desires, we’ll be ready to do what is selfish.
