Don't Be Stubborn

Have you ever watched a child's body language when they don't want to do something? They turn away in some way. They're defiant and often stubborn in their defiance.

As we get older, not really more mature, we learn to do this in more subtle ways. It's called passive-aggressive behavior.

This reaction—whether external or internal—can be destructive, especially when we get defiant and stubborn with God.
