The passage here deals with the subject of the state, therefore we cannot limit such teaching as only applying to the church. We are to select noble, God-fearing men to serve in public office. When you vote, do you consider these qualities of the people you support? Pray that God will raise up such men as public servants in our nation.
It is good to have at least one wise person to whom you can turn when you need advice. Younger people especially need the counsel of an older Christian, a wise mentor who can help them avoid mistakes and navigate tough situations. Do you have a mentor or counselor to whom you can turn? If not, find one. Are you an older person who might be able to offer wisdom to a young person in need? Find someone who needs you in his life.
