Epistle to Diognetes (about 150 AD)
“They marry, as do all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives.
HOW do we do this?
Tim Elmore -- generational attitudes towards life and authority:
Silent/Builders: “Just be grateful you have a job” > RESPECT THEM
Baby Boomers: “I deserve better” > REPLACE THEM
Gen X’ers: “Keep it real” > CYNICALLY ENDURE THEM
Millennials: “Life is a cafeteria” > I CHOOSE THEM
Gen Z’ers: “I’m hoping and coping” > NOT SURE I NEED THEM
1 Peter 2:13a, 16
Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority…Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.
* RESPECT with honor
* RESPECT with honor

* COURAGE without offense
WHY would we do this?
