Did you hear this as a kid?

September 10

For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. Leviticus 11:45

Are you a parent? Then you’ve probably told your children to do something and they asked you why. What did you say? “Because I said so. Period.”

But times arise, I believe, when parents want their children to do certain things, and they ought to explain their rationale. It’s important to teach principles for living instead of just popping off with mere commands and rules. But sometimes children are not able to understand, so the answer I just mentioned is one that simply communicates parental authority to a child.

A biblical example of this is the book of Leviticus. It’s full of laws that no one at that time understood logically. And yet did God stop to explain the law? No. He simply said, “I am the Lord your God.” In His omnipotence and omniscience, He is above our demand for explanations and deserving of our full obedience.
