Self Will or God's Will
by Rita Langeland
In modern society we see an abundance of “self-will” being exercised. We find it very distasteful when we see it in a child, but seem oblivious to its ugliness when it is expressed in our own adult lives. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “self-willed” as “governed by one’s own will” and “determined to do what you want even though other people may not want you to do it.” When it comes to our relationship with God, “self-will” places us squarely at odds with God’s will.
