We live in a world where we must respond to others and take orders. We have bosses, police, parents, teachers and the list goes on.
It is a matter of the heart. Do we have a heart that respects authority? If so, we are wise.
There is another side of this. Do we come unglued when someone in authority asks us to do something? King Solomon concludes we have an empty head. As my dad would say, “That is not right bright”.
God’s goal for us for us to obey. Obey authority here and in heaven.
“A wise heart takes orders; an empty head will come unglued.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 10:8)
