If the concepts of leadership and submission are merely man’s ideas, we have no obligation to follow them. If, however, they are God’s idea, we have no right to ignore them. Because man has so often distorted the intent of God’s design we have often failed to avail ourselves of His life-giving principles. We should go God’s way with God’s heart.
We live in a culture that often tries to convince me that who I am, and what I have, are not enough. It needs to be bigger, newer, or faster or we need to be smarter, stronger or richer. Sadly, none of these ever bring true contentment or confidence. Thankfully, because of Jesus we can be fully content and confident in this life and the next.
