On my Bible study blog about Spiritual Disciplines, Further up, Further In, we have begun a discussion about submission. I thought it would be cool to post it here too to get some more thoughts and input about this. Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments.
I appreciate the way Valerie Hess writes about submission. So often when I hear that word, I automatically think of submitting within the context of a marriage or in church. I have no problem with either, but I am glad she broadened the use of the word and the discipline.
I think the area of submission within church and marriage and has been talked about to death. In studying submission this week, lets try to think outside of those two boxes. Lets think of submitting to God in other areas of our lives. Some examples might be submitting to God by:
- Giving up the need to be right
- listening to and accepting criticism from others
- Not speeding
- Not littering
- Being on time for events
Those are some of my ideas. What are some of yours?
