God's definition of authority
This past weekend at the men's retreat we talked about Godly authority. My pastor summed it up to say that authority means taking responsibility. In our homes we don't take control or govern authority, we walk under it. We take responsibility for our family. We serve our family. We wash the dishes and let our wives go to bed. We work with our children when they do their chores. We serve without expectation of anything in return. In church we take authority by taking responsibility there. If we see things that need to be done, we do it. If there are children running amok, we stop them and take them to their parents. I have learned so much from this past weekend. We don't lead in authority, we lead under authority.....God's authority.
