I'm blessed to have two incredible grandchildren - Ryan is 9 months and Melanie turned two in December. Just a few months ago Melanie would do virtually anything you asked her to do, but things began to change as she approached her second birthday! I wouldn't exactly say she's in the "terrible twos" but she definitely has a mind of her own and isn't quite as quick to obey as she was a few months ago.
I wonder how many of us are just like Melanie. When we first trusted Christ as Savior we were so grateful and anxious to obey the Lord, but as time went on we began to get a mind of our own and think we knew best. Let's get back to being like a child in the Father's arms!
Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."
