Obedience Test 8

In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders.  And all of you serve each other in humility for God opposes the proud but favors the humble.

1 Peter:5:5

Do you ever try to usurp the authority placed over you, because you think you “know better”?

By rejecting the counsel of one authority, you expose yourself to the destruction that comes with rebellion.

It is prideful to assume that you know better than those who assign tasks to you.

Using discernment if something goes against God’s ways is one thing, but when you just think that you “know better”, and don’t have to answer to God-given authority, it’s totally different, and is rebellion.
