Feb. 12, 2010 - God's Authority

By Scott McChrystal

“So the Lord said to Solomon, ‘Since this is your attitude and you have not kept my covenant and my decrees, which I commanded you, I will most certainly tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your subordinates’ ” (1 Kings 11:11, NIV).

What about you? How's your attitude toward God's authority?
