The day that I realized that my parents were not perfect, is the day when I had some serious praying to do.
Growing up, my parents knew everything. Sure I didn’t always listen and therefore learned many lessons the hard way. But whatever my parents said, I believe to be true.
Then, I realized that my parents didn’t know everything and were not perfect.
That is when I started to check everything, to see if it was true. This is part of life. It’s growing up.
But when you come to this point in your life, you have an important choice to make.
You now have the hard choice to battle every day,
To become rebellious and stubborn
To continue to grow and learn, with proper discernment.
Yes, you must prove what is true and right for yourself. But what about your parents and those in authority?
Yahweh gave them to us for a reason. Though you’ve discovered that you can now determine good and evil for yourself, parents are still important.
NO ONE is perfect. So no matter who you are conversing with, learning from, or whoever is in authority over you, it is important to have love and respect towards them all.
~Continue to listen and learn
~Check what they say by the Bible constantly and at the proper time
~Speak with love and respect always
~Let your attitude never fail to be obedient and humble
~Pray. Pray. Pray
“Obey then that have rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not grief: for that is unprofitable for you.” ~Hebrews 13:17
Our parents, grandparents, elder relations, teachers, government officials, and others in authority, are NOT perfect. Yet Yahweh has commanded us to respect, obey, and learn from them.
Authority is not about knowing everything and being perfect, it’s about the position held.
With that position comes great responsibility. But it is not our job to determine if they should have that position, it is for us to obey Yahweh and trust that He put them in that position for a reason.
Our most perfect Authority is Yahweh and Yahushua, and by respecting ALL our authority, we are obeying Him who IS perfect.
