Talking about Jesus with my daughter, I told her that Jesus was willing to obey God by dying on the cross, but he didn’t want to. I said that to encourage her that she needed to decide to obey even when it was hard. It was a good discussion.
Trouble was, I was later that day in my kitchen, needing to clean something yucky, and thinking, “I don’t really want to do this.” Then I thought of Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, saying, “Not my will, but thine.”
I need to remember this more often.
