Today's Scripture: "Many entreat the favor of the nobility, and every man is a friend to one who gives gifts." Pr. 19:6

5824. You must have something before you can lose it. JG


See it.

Temporary topping

Live it.

A chain of command is the order of authority that extends from top to bottom of an organization. In the military, enlistees serve under the authority directly over them who report to the one over them and so on. When that chain reaches the top there is no further command structure. It is not expected that commands skip anyone in the chain nor that anyone in the chain issue contradictory commands. When that rule is honored, there is order that exists within the organization.

Just as constraints are intended to maintain balance, certain liberties are afforded leaders to extend as desired to those under their command. That's good news for the person under command, but it also implies responsibility to stay within parameters of the liberty or lose it. It's too bad Christians mistakenly feel they have don't have any rules to follow and therefore can't lose anything.

Pray it.

God, what You have given me is far too precious to miss, much less lose.
