“…But, I also understood who the real BOSS was, in my life, at all times….”

??????????????????Who’s the BOSS?  We all remember the television series of the mid 80’s to the early 90’s, lasting six years, and starring Tony Danza, where everybody considered themselves as “the boss.”  Well, things are, too often, no different in real life; then in the imaginary lives of television.  We all think, or want to be, the BOSS.  In my early days of business; I worked for “the other man,” and He was “the boss.”  Period.  In later years, it would have been difficult (in my case) to tell the difference in my boss being “the boss,” and me being the boss.  Sure, he signed the checks (in a manner of speaking), but for all practicable purposes… I was the Boss, and everyone understood that.  In more recent years, while on a 2 ½ year consulting venture… it was difficult to say who the boss was, as “my boss,” very definitely looked to me…in running the company and making 90% of the decisions.   I, on the other hand, assumed that role, but for me, I always understood who the “real boss was…and that would be him.  Remember this:  We all have a BOSS, in the worldly sense; it’s either our employer, the bank, the IRS, or more likely, our Spouses; But, I also understood who the real BOSS was, in my life, and at all times.  And that would be, “Our Lord Jesus Christ.”  I yield to Him.  To me, He was Chairman of the Board in any of my companies.  I yield to His submissive Authority, and still do so, until this day.  I figure…why try to fix something that’s not broken?  God is not broken, and He makes no mistakes.  God is Sovereign, and He is “Omnipotence.” But, none of that makes any sense if we are not completely submissive to His will. 1 Corinthians 11:3 – But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God.  …Blessings…cjlb…8/8/14
