Sometimes people talk about how they are “struggling with” certain things, or “working through” them, when what they really mean is that they are delaying obedience. “I have a problem with this,” they say, or, “I don’t feel comfortable with that yet,” meaning, “Who me? Disobedient?” . . . Obedience will very likely earn you nasty labels nowadays. There’s nothing new about that. Obedience has never been the route to popularity. The question is simply, who is your master?
