One of the most difficult lessons we face in life is that of yielding, or giving over, to another person or situation.
It is an innate characteristic we possess.
It is a lesson we have to learn over and over, from the time we are small children, learning to yield to parents demands, then in school to teachers' demands, and in, oh, so many situations as adults.
To be yielding is often considered to be soft, giving up, docile - yet, it sometimes requires great inner strength to yield or to cede what we hold dear.
In days of Old in England and France, the days of Kings and Knights, they had jousting tournaments, and other contests of strength and valor. When a knight was bested, he either yielded or was slain.
are cautioned, however, about yielding to temptation and are urged to yield
our lives to Christ and turn in faith to Him and Saving Grace.
