Hi! At my Sunday school, we were given an assignment.
Throughout the month, we were learning about respect. Our bottom line is,
"Respect God because He is in charge of everything," and "Respect is showing others they are important by what you say and do."

Our section came from Matthew 8:5-13.
It's about a Roman Centurion. He was in charge of a TON of soldiers. If he said, "jump!" or, "fetch me some water", and they would have to do it-immediately.

But this story is about the Centurion who remembered something most people forget. 'God is in charge of everything'.

One day, the Centurion's servant fell sick. In fact, he was so sick, he couldn't even move!
He heard that Jesus had come into Capernum, so, he hurried to Jesus and said; "Lord, my servant is sick, and he is suffering terribly."

Jesus replied, "I will go heal him."

But the Roman said, "No. I am not worthy enough for you to come into my home. Just say the word, and my servant will be healed.

Jesus was astonished at his faith. Turning to the crowd, he said, "In all of Israel, I have not seen as much faith in them as this man." Turning back to the Centurion, he said, "Go; It shall be done just as you believed it would."

And his servant was healed at that very moment.

KNOW that God deserves our ultimate respect because he is in charge of everything.

Thanks for reading!
