Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about my commitment to being a lifetime giver. Growing up, I was taught the principles of tithing, so that’s always been a part of my life. When opportunities arise for me to sow financially into non-profits or individuals determined to make a particular goal, I give. I also try to serve in my community by volunteering with various organizations when time allows. Over the years, I’ve even “gifted” my professional talents to others at no charge. So if you asked me if I was a giver, I would quickly say yes.
However, today, I was completely blown away as I sat in church listening to my Pastor, Andy Stanley minister on mutual submission. Often times, when the word submission comes up in conversation it’s in reference to Ephesians 5:22 when Jesus told wives that they are to submit to their husbands.
