I was explaining what a yield sign is to my daughter yesterday because someone failed to yield and almost side-swiped us. Today, I was reading “The Adversary” by Mark I. Bubek and he quotes Romans 6:13 in regards to yielding to God. Ï looked up the verse and this is how it reads in the NIV, “Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. I couldn’t help but think about how much this resonates with the central idea of Becoming Ever Mindful.

Just as the driver who did not yield to me yesterday could have caused a serious accident, we too can cause a lot of trouble for ourselves when we fail to yield to God’s direction.

Think about that today and be sure to yield to God’s wisdom!
