Brothers and sisters:
In Christ we were also chosen,
destined in accord with the purpose of the One
who accomplishes all things according to the intention of his will,
Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 1:11
Whose will be done? A question I pondered frequently when raising my six children. Terms we parents talked about at mom's get togethers included "a battle of the wills" or "pick your battle". True, it seems like a test of wills when young ones push the boundaries as they grow and mature. Also, an aspect of parenting is deciding the best option for all the family, and being sure that everyone's needs are met, not just the loudest or most demanding.
Our relationship with God should not be a test of wills either, but as we grow spiritually and mature, how true is it that many of us "test our boundaries" with God? God tells us in scriptures quite clearly that it is not only the loudest or most demanding who will enter into His Kingdom, nor the most gifted. In the love language of God, He declares His unconditional love for all of us, and has opened up the heavens so we all may enter.
Wouldn't it be awesome if we all thought about the gifts we are given, realizing that if we utilize or make use of these gifts in accordance with the will of God, we could do so much to bring about His Kingdom, the place of love and peace to this place here where we live.
