I made my appointment and gathered the things I needed to renew my drivers license. You would think that my old license would suffice to prove my identity being they are the ones who gave it to me in the first place. The only thing I really care about is getting rid of that dusty old picture that makes me look like “The Church Lady!” I don’t know what I was thinking when I wore that floral print jacket! It’s such a dreaded day and the people at the counter don’t really care if I have better things to do than sit around for who knows how long waiting for them to hurry up. All I know is that it’s against the law for me to drive with an expired license and you can bet I’ll need it to show the kind officer who pulls me over for a violation. It’s just one of those things we have to do. Not only that, but the Bible makes it very clear that we are to follow the laws of the land even if it seems dreadful!
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. Romans 13:1-2
