The Practice of Submission - Day 31
Give in to someone today! That’s right let someone else win! Oh, what a feeling! Practicing Submission eventually frees us to “Give In!” This freedom allows us to not have to have our own way all the time. It’s not weakness! It’s the ability to put others needs before our own. This freedom helps us to genuinely love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. Without the practice of submission, I don’t think we can do what the Bible says is one of the “Greatest Commandments; Love your neighbor.” Mark 12:31 at the end of the verse says, “There is no greater commandment than these.” How can I love my neighbor if I don’t even think about them? If I only think about my needs, I will never have time to think about their needs.
Today: Try to spend some time (maybe at a stop light) to think about the needs of someone other than you. Do you know any of their needs?
