When you respect governing authority, they are supposed to honor you.
Read: Romans 13: 1,3
1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you.
