									Seek the Peace and
Prosperity of the City


   Jeremiah 29:4-7
Jeremiah 29:4-7
4 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of
Israel, says to all those I carried into exile
from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 “Build houses
and settle down; plant gardens and eat what
they produce. 6 Marry and have sons and
daughters; find wives for your sons and give
your daughters in marriage, so that they too
may have sons and daughters. Increase in
number there; do not decrease. 7 Also, seek
the peace and prosperity of the city to which I
have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord
for it, because if it prospers, you too will
prosper.” [NIV]
Jeremiah 29:7
7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of
the city to which I have carried you into
exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if
it prospers, you too will prosper.”
     [NIV]
1 Peter 2:13-17
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to
every authority instituted among men:
whether to the king, as the supreme
authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by
him to punish those who do wrong and to
commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s
will that by doing good you should silence the
ignorant talk of foolish men. 16 Live as free
men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-
up for evil; live as servants of God. 17 Show
proper respect to everyone: Love the
brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the
king.       [NIV]
