Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. - 1 Peter 2:13-15
Chaos is the aim of the Destroyer. Satan seeks to take apart everything God puts together. God grants authority to restrain the disorder. Human governments mediate God’s authority. When they rebel from His order, they become subject to overthrow. But God’s covenant people have the assignment of submitting to true authority. The foolish are those who seek to lead rebellion, only for the sake of seizing power. God’s promise is that as His people submit to God-granted authority, they help squelch the rebellious and maintain society’s peace.

That’s why Dr. Ed Young put together his easy-to-follow 3-message CD series,Parental Guidance. In it, Dr. Young reveals proven truth that every mother, father, and grandparent can immediately embrace in order to build and strengthen their family.
