    Romans 13:1-7 New International Version (NIV)

    Submission to Governing Authorities

    13 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that
    exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels
    against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and
    those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no
    terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want
    to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and
    you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for
    your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the
    sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to
    the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a
    matter of conscience.
    6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s
    servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what
    you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

    Your elections give you leaders. Obey the leaders and the laws that they
