At times I’ve refused to follow directions from someone in legitimate authority over me. Genesis 19:17-26 provides a cautionary tale about the possibilities of insubordination. Even Moses was disobedient, and it cost him.
When I’m nervous, I blather. My bible warns me about running on without any real point to make in Proverbs 17:28.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
8 Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice
And equity and every good course.Proverbs 2:6-9 (NASB)
