Authority plays a huge role in our lives. From the time we are born all throughout our lives, we are
under some sort of authority. We all want our parents, teachers, and those in authority over us to
be pleased with us so we don’t get in trouble all of the time. Whether it’s our parents, teachers,
coaches, police officers, or ultimately God we have to learn to submit to authority.
The problem arises when our sin nature gets involved. We want to do what we want when we want,
no matter what anyone says, but God placed authority in our lives for our benefit. He set these
people in our lives to help guide us through it. Every authority in our lives is there to represent God,
and we honor Him when we obey them and show them respect.
