being a teacher taught me that discipline is important. So important for a child and teenager to learn submission, humility, self- control, a little less about self and more about the bigger picture and about others. So to be a better adult.
I used to think that school should be a little less rigid, not so heavy on rules. But the truth is, rules help everything work better and orderly. If this universe had no universal rules and order, if elephants could fly and mosquitoes could grow to the size of even a rat, if gravity denied itself, everything would come to chaos. I have learned to see the beauty of discipline and rules. he The harmony of beauty and order.
Of course all this without the underlying fact that love should be the reason for all this. The love towards the authority of God who set everything in its proper place. Who has taught us to submit to authority, His authority. And as He commands, to submit to human authority and to each other in love. It is a beautiful painting of sacrifice that brings joy. Joy from above that we won't quite understand until we do as he ask of us. A journey :)
