So today was a long, and very eye opening day. It started out normally but was rudely interrupted 1 hour before the end of the day (3pm) by my chain of command telling us that we were not going home until what they decided what needed to be done at 10am this morning should be done before the end of the day. So that really brought out my sin. I immediately started reacting with questions to myself about "why could they not do this earlier, etc etc..". So then I really started having a bad attitude about it. I was justifying all the wrong reasons that I wanted to get out of the military, like being under the command of people who don't make sense, etc. When really, it was me who was not making any sense. I called my wife to tell her that I was not coming home right after work because we would be staying late to clean. Her reaction and famous Godly words were "Just remember who you are working for honey."
So just who is it that I am working for? I am working for God alone, not man. We are called to obey those who have been appointed over us (Ephisians 6:5) , and to do so in a Godly loving manner(Colossians 1:10). Within a short time after my prayer for assistance, my attitude about having to stay was changed and I was looking forward to helping complete the task and enjoy the time spent with fellow coworkers. Thank you God for your amazing teachings and sending your Son Jesus to die on the cross so that when we sin, we can count on our faith in Jesus Christ to forgive us.
