Stiff Necked Ox

I listen to Beth Moore’s Living Proof weekly Bible study here.

The study called “Building New Walls – 6”, for Monday, January 22.

Wow. I got a word picture of myself as a stubborn, powerful, stiff-necked ox that just resounded with me. It isn’t until I submit to Christ’s yoke that I become useful.

Useful. This is what I want to be most in life. It’s what I hope to teach J5. J5 learns about it almost daily by watching Thomas, he learns about being a “really useful engine”.

Why do I fight the yoke so often?
