Everyone should learn to obey constituted authority
Happy Sunday guys, how are you doing today? I hope you're having a great day. Let's quickly review yesterday's article.
The phrase “Age is just a number.” is a phrase that means a lot. It a very great way to encourage anyone who thinks he's past any time given to achieve something worthwhile. Being old in age does not mean that you cannot have the strength and enthusiasm of a young person, also you can be young but have the knowledge, experience and wisdom of someone that is twice your age. Your age doesn’t need to affect your passion or ability to do or be wgst you want to be.
Your dreams should drive you to do what you do. It should motivate you to be who you want to be. Dreams give you a purpose, direction and focus in life.
Having a dream does not end at just having it. There's a lot attached to it. It'll require you to set priorities, focus on your dream and be ready to make sacrifices to reach your goals. You'll need to do whatever it takes to get to your goals regardless of the obstacles. You'll never know how far you can go until you give your dream your best shot.
Special thanks to my sponsors both old and the ones planning to, subscribers both old and those that will subscribe now, also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you, I do not take it for granted.
Have you ever noticed when things go wrong in a family or an institution that it is inevitably because someone has not obeyed constituted authority?
The purpose of this article is to encourage everyone to learn to obey constituted authority.
Obedience to constituted authority cannot be over-emphasized, for it is the basis for orderliness and peaceful co-existence in the society. Disobedience to constituted authority will cause absence of peace in an environment. To exercise authority and to be obeyed go hand in hand. Unless one is prepared to obey, there is no sense in exercising authority.
Everyone should learn to obey constituted authority because unless they do so, they will never be qualified to exercise it, because they have no credibility and because they don’t really understand what it means to be a follower.
In fact, if I were to identify one single cause of societal problems, it is the absence of obedience to constituted authority. It is the lack of obedience that has resulted in the decay of industry, destruction of marriage and family and general lawlessness in the country. The ability to submit to authority is a test for any person aspiring for a leadership position.
For example, if you aspire to be a teacher or a pastor or a policeman or a governor or an army officer etc., you must willingly submit yourself to the required training. If you are not willing to submit yourself to the necessary training, then your leadership is doomed for failure. The same applies in private life. If a worker, a student, a child or anyone else disobeys constituted authority, he/she cannot be expected to know how to lead others.
Until you learn to submit to authority, you will never be qualified to exercise it, because you have no credibility and because you don’t really understand what it means to be a follower. Everyone should endeavor to submit to authority ranging from children to workers etc.
Obedience to constituted authority cannot be overemphasised, for it ramifies the basis for orderliness and peaceful co-existence in the society. Disobedience to constituted authority brings anarchy and chaotic environment which translate to absence of peace.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
