You’re Not the Boss of Me!

May 18, 2018

I’m one of those people who knew everything about raising children.

Then I became a parent.

“You’re not the boss of me!” was a goofy line I thought an adult made up and blamed on a child.

Then I became a parent.

But, “You’re not the boss of me!” is something not only children say. I’ll admit that I’ve demonstrated that sentiment in both word and deed, even to God.

You, too?

From that first Christmas comes this message: Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord(Luke 2:11)  That last word, Lord, isn’t subtle or tricky or hard to understand. Lord means “the one in charge” and “the one to whom we’re answerable” and, well, yeah, Lord means “boss.”

Lord, have mercy; you ARE the boss of me.
