London is nearly the exact same size geographically as Oklahoma City, but the population difference is drastic. (OKC’s population was approx. 500,000 last time we checked; London’s population is approx. 7 million people.) Every day on sidewalks and street corners I come up against (or nearly run smack into) someone else needing to get past me. I sometimes become frustrated when others don’t watch out for me or our children, but it’s as likely they wish I’d be on the lookout for them!
To whom do you need to yield today? Is your husband asking you to stick to the agreed-upon Christmas gift budget? Have your parents made their rules abundantly clear but you find your heart hardened to their wishes? Are you at a crossroads in life – God is asking you to turn and walk in one direction but you’d like to go another? Yield. Give way. You may discover that stepping aside brings you more joy than continually pushing your way through the masses.
“Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Ephesians 5:21
