Devotional thoughts; As Christians what does God's Word tell us to do first when it come to Government. Government is the people.

1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. K.J.V. in public domain
