Guiding Little Hearts to Trust and Obey

Nina Lehmann by John Everett Millais, 1868-1869

“Don’t waste time trying to sugarcoat submission to make it palatable. Obeying when you see the sense in it is not submission; it is agreement. Submission necessarily means doing what you do not wish to do. It is never easy or painless.

True biblical submission must be found in knowing Christ and his grace. Don’t try to make it something that does not require grace. Don’t reduce submission to authority to that which fits natural man and natural abilities."
