Have you ever shared an unpopular opinion? Like saying you prefer cold pizza or that your favorite holiday is Groundhog Day? No offense, Punxsutawney Phil. Unpopular opinions can draw good-natured teasing at best or nasty ridicule at worst. I say all this to prepare you, because the topic for September’s Scripture Writing Plan is most definitely an unpopular concept: Submission.
Submission is certainly not popular, but it is scriptural. This month we’re going to be taking a deep dive into the topic of Submission. What does it look like? Why is it necessary? To whom should we submit ourselves?
But before we go further, here’s a sneak peek at this month’s gorgeous graphic goodies! This blend of cheerful yellow and moody maroon is the perfect symbol for the yearly transition from summer heat to fall beauty.
When we think of submitting ourselves to one another, do we think of weakness? Do we think of honor? Of duty? Of cowardice? The world has a severe misunderstanding of healthy, Biblical submission. As always, we can learn what true submission should look like by examining Scripture. In this month’s Bible study, we’ll be concentrating on the following topics:
- A Carpenter’s Son
- Lord, Make Me a Servant
- Shocking, Sickening, or Sublime? The Submissive Wife
- Submitting to the Authorities
Because we relaunched The Obstacle Course in August, we did not offer a stand-alone course on Forgiveness, our August topic. But there’s good news! Those of you who enrolled in July’s Unity course will get a $2 off coupon for this month’s course on Submission. PLUS you still get the $2 off coupon for the month’s T-shirt over at the Ruffled Mango Etsy shop. 😉
If you’re enrolled in our yearlong Glorify course, however, you can access all the material on Teachable.
As always, if you’re just looking for the Submission Scripture writing plan, you can find that by clicking here. It has 31 days, so you can use it ANY month. After all, it’s always a good month to start writing Scripture, am I right?
Grace and peace to you, lovelies! May God bless you as you submit to His will.
