Masters of ourselves.

"No woman who has not learned to master herself can be trusted to submit willingly to her husband. And that for willingly means that she does not merely resign herself to something she cannot avid. It means that by an act of her own will she gives herself. With gladness she submits because she understands that voluntary submission is her very strength. Because it is the thing asked of her by her Creator, it is the thing which assures her of fulfillment. It is the task assigned her which, willingly preformed, actually strengthens the husband in his weakness." -Elisabeth Elliot

Lord, make us masters of ourselves that we may be servants of others.
