Toddlers work hard to get their own way. They’ll do whatever it takes – tantrums, kicking, punching, screaming. That might be cute at two, but by forty-two it starts to lose its charm. All the maneuvering and posturing is hard work, but that’s nothing compared with the energy it takes to make believe you’re not maneuvering and posturing. After a while, “Thy will be done” starts to look like heaven.
“I did it my way.” Frank Sinatra
“Love does not demand its own way.” 1 Corinthians 13:5
