Had a thought that seemed profound to my Pooh Bear small mind, and thought it worth sharing. There’s an old saying that goes something like:
To be angry is easy. But to be angry to the right degree, at the right time, for the right reason, in the right manner, and towards the right person — these are not so easy.
It occurred to me that much the same could be said about submission. To be submissive is easy. Just give up self responsibiliy and become lazy. But to submit to the right party, in the right way, for the right reasons, to the right degree, and on the right occasion? Not so easy.
God tried to make it easy for our ladies — submit to your own husband as to the Lord. Not to someone else’s husband, or the pastor, or anyone else clamoring for your submission. Just … follow your husband’s lead.
For us fellas, it’s a bit more complicated. None of us argue that we need to submit when and where and how and why and to whom we are suppose to. The arguments, if any, center solely on what all those qualifiers might be.
Don’t want to start another "heated discussioon" here. Just sharing a personal thought for fun. Now, does anyone perchance have another jar of honey for a very hungry bear?
