Authority. You are a representative of God, under His authority to train up your children. As such, you have a divine mandate to ensure that your children honour you and submit to you. Therefore, for the Lord’s sake, never allow your children to speak to you flippantly or to choose whether or not to obey you. But seek to encourage your children to keep the 5th Commandment by winning their respect through training them with a prayerful diligence tempered with love and grace, knowing that they are on loan to you from the Lord.
