Submission to God
‘that it may go well with you’ (Eph 6:3). God wants it to go well with you, children and all. That’s a great thought! And he tells us how. Often we invite our own misery, and we invite the discipline of God because a loving Father must discipline his children for their good (Heb 12). Do not be like the horse or mule which must be controlled by bit or bridle (Psalm 32) – you do not always have to learn the hard way! Practise an easy submission to God – like Jesus, like Mary the mother of Jesus.
