Being Submissive Part 2 of 2

Last week I talked about being Submissive as Wives/Daughters/Sisters.
This week I wanted to focus more on the practical applications that we can put into practice in our daily lives/routines.

How to Submit... practical applications:
  • *When your dad/husband/grandpa/Uncle tells you to do something, do it with humbleness, quietness, joyfulness, meekness, and a submit spirit.
  • *Do it without complaining, Grumbling (Philippians 2:12-14, "So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach...")
  • *Address them with wisdom and kindness. (Proverbs 31:26, "She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.") 
  • *Show them love & Respect when talking to/about them.

    I hope this helps you put into aspect some of the things that we don't put into context that we should. Whatever your case may be, I know the men will be blessed in our lives when we submit to them and show them love, honor, and respect.
    1st Peter 2:13-20, "
    Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds favor with God."
