Submit to authority no matter what some in the culture may say.
What does that mean for parents today?
Backing the Blue
Teaching our kids to submit to legitimate authority should be standard fare for any responsible parent. Like it or not, our men and women in blue are a legitimate authority.
Rebelling against police officers because one has a broad brush stereotypical view of all police being corrupt, inept, racist or bigoted, is profiling the police the very same way so many folks do not wish to be profiled themselves. Do you see the hypocrisy here?
The thirteenth chapter of Romans not only tells us to submit to our governmental authorities, but it also tells us that they don’t carry their weapons for nothing. So the best way to ensure our kids won’t be victims of police abuse is to teach them to obey the police each and every time they encounter them.
