Going Deeper into Respect: Week 4/Day 5

Authority

Return to the Reflection Thoughts. Consider your respect of authority and whether you respect those under your authority. Ask God to grow you in your respect of authority. Praise God as the Author of all authority.

Day 5:

Read Mark 10:42-45

What was Jesus teaching His disciples about authority?

There are two sides to respecting authority. We are not only to respect the authority over us, but we must also respect the authority given to us.

How did Jesus – God incarnate – wield His authority?

How do you use your authority over others? Are you more likely to have others serve you? Or serve others?

How should you use your authority in light of Jesus’s teaching? Explain.
