Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Stubborn Sometimes
by Charles R. Swindoll

Do not be as the horse or as the mule 
which have no understanding. . . .
Psalm 32:9

You've heard of God's children referred to as sheep. It isn't a bad picture, all things considered. The image conjures up visions of green pastures, still waters, and a gentle Shepherd, keeping watch over the flock.

But He also refers to us as mules. Sometimes, I think that's a better analogy.

Don't be like a balky mule! 

Don't be stubborn when God speaks. 

Don't continually fight and resist Him. 

Don't keep running away from Him so that He can't speak to you. 

Don't force Him to lasso you before you'll let Him draw near.

Why do we resist such a magnificent God who loves us? It makes no sense!
