"Honor your father and your mother that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth. What does this mean? We should fear and love God that we do not dishonor or anger our parents or others in authority, but honor, serve, and obey them, and give them love and respect."
In this Fourth Commandment, the Lord tells us to obey those in authority over us. As Christians we want to obey those in authority because our conscience tells us to honor God's commandment (Romans 13:7). Since our School Board has authority over us and the school policies are set by the School Board, as Christians we want to honor everything that is written in the handbook. When we disobey the policies therein, we sin against God's Fourth Commandment, whether we disobey by wearing shorts when we are not supposed to, or by failing to pay tuition as defined, etc. When we disobey in this way, we also teach our children that it is acceptable to sin and to defy authority.
Let us instead ask God to forgive our sins against this and every commandment. Let us rejoice that Jesus is our Savior from all sins, and with a renewed heart, ask God to help us and our children to honor his commandments. Let us be examples to our children by honoring the school's policies and by teaching our children to do the same.
