Men, its time to know our place

Standard

“authority follows responsibility. The way to receive authority is to stand in your proper place of responsibility . If you abandon your responsibility, you forfeit your authority . Consider fatherlessness in America-when men forsake their responsibility in the home, they lose authority in culture. Evil gains authority in a nation when men refuse to stand in their place of responsibility in the home.”

excerpt from “Whatever the Cost” by David and Jason Benham

 

Men, its time to stand up and fulfill our roles as fathers. Our children need to understand authority, not only in the home, but its importance in all society, and towards God.  Our children need to see our example as men in carrying out our authority, but also how we submit to our own authorities, such as the government,our bosses, and God.

Without understanding and submitting to an authority structure, there is chaos because we act as though life revolves around my desires and no one has the right to tell me what to do.

“evil gains authority in a nation when men refuse to stand in their place of responsiblity in the home”—let’s fight, men!
