Finding Favor with God
Show respect for everyone. Love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God. Show respect for the king.
You who are slaves must accept the authority of your masters. Do whatever they tell you--not only if they are kind and reasonable, but even if they are harsh. For God is pleased with you when, for the sake of your conscience, you patiently endure unfair treatment. Of course, you get no credit for being patient if you are beaten for doing wrong. But if you suffer for doing right and are patient beneath the blows, God is pleased with you.
1 Peter 2:17-20 NLT
