God’s Instructions to Follow The Chain of Command:
Teaching our children to “Do the right thing.”
Many parents have failed to do the above. If each generation had continued to teach their children to treat others the way they, themselves, would like to be treated (that is with respect), we wouldn't be confronted with the violence we see in the “Mirror of Society.” The chain of command has been broken. It was broken when parents neglected their parental duties.
“But I Know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord to do justice and judgment.”
God commands that every parent be a good role model to their children. That means the parents are to teach their children by example:
Work, support them financially, take good care of them, educate them, give them the moral support they need, being there for them, and teaching them, to understand what their priorities should be.
What happens to Earth When the Chain of Command is broken?
When our children deliberately disobey us, we let them know that what they did was unacceptable. And they are grounded. God does the same thing for us when we disobey him.
He takes things away:
Draughts and storms takes away the vegetables and fruits and kills the livestocks, that supply our food. That results in high prices at the supermarkets, due to lots of crops and livestocks got wiped out. It cause financial losses to those who grow them. Therefore, they have to recover their losses by charging more, so they can continue to grow their crops and livestocks.
Storms wipe out lots of structural property and destroy lives. The damages are tremendously costly. The insurance companies have to raise the premiums, to recover the loses of their insureds money they used to pay claims.
Like any child, when they are grounded, they often times are disappointed with the parents. And sometimes feels that the punishment is too harsh. But they understand that their parents loves them, and always wants the best for them.
The punishment is to correct the child, so that they learn responsibility. That is the purpose for which God wants us to achieve, by accepting the responsible that he has given us to follow, The Chain of Command.
