REFLECTION & PRACTICE (Day 4 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

Our three recent concepts:

stewardship – He’s the boss
take action – because love does
be God-dependent – be a branch on the Vine

I heard a talk recently where authority and submission to authority were mentioned. I think most folks struggle with the concept because we have seen authority so misused. Who wants to let someone else be boss when it’s just going to bring you grief?

When it comes to God, He is love and what He does is perfect. Kinda hard to beat that. 🙂 I guess what I’m thinking is that I need to focus on that. He’s the boss and that’s OK because He won’t misuse His authority. I can trust him with my marriage, my home, my work, and more.

I’ll own it’s not always easy, but it’s a helpful focus.
