Romper Room

In your life, where would you like to experience more self-control?....(Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 371).

Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version (NIV)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

The Christian forms the resolution of a paradox. The Christian seeks to do only the Father's will--but in doing so gains maximum self-control and spiritual freedom.  He gains control by relinquishing control.  This is readily understandable if one considers the typical worker in a democratic society in which micro-management is minimized. In such situations, a loyal and trustworthy employee by doing the employer's will maximizes his own freedom and latitude on the job. He escapes close management by taking ownership of the purposes, goals, and objectives of the organization.  Thus, once again, we can see that the most intelligent option relinquishes substantial power in order to gain it.  In fact, the weighty tome of work-rules and procedures (the law) is often unread and largely ignored by the best employees.
