Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a message minute. 

There is a certain order to life isn't there?  You crawl before you walk.  You put gas in the car before you go on a trip.  You heat a pizza before you eat it.  Ok, so maybe some of you don't do those things in order and the results have been a little less than stellar.  Here's one thing that I think we should do in the proper order for the best results.

Paul says to Timothy, "I urge then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (1 Timothy 2:1-2)  I've tried to live by this passage on priorities through the last four presidents of our country, and the results have been wonderful for me and my heart.  Today and everyday, before you complain about a past or present leader, pray for them. Today and everyday, before you defend a past or present leader, pray for them.  First of all today and everyday, offer petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving for leaders as you strive for a peaceful and quiet life.  You'll be glad you did.

I replied to a comment on social media with the impetus for this post.  It shares the only argument I ever had with my dad in my adult life.  May you glean wisdom from my mistakes and victories.   Click to make it larger. 

P.S. Just for good measure, this is how you reheat pizza. Click the image to view.
