Howard Hendricks, sat in a plane that was delayed for takeoff. After a long wait, the passengers became more and more irritated. Hendricks noticed how gracious one of the flight attendants was as she spoke with them.

After the plane finally took off, he told the flight attendant how amazed he was at her poise and self-control, and said he wanted to write a letter of commendation for her to the airline. The stewardess replied that she didn't work for the airline company but for Jesus Christ. She said that just before going to work she and her husband prayed together that she would be a good representative of Christ.

Doing it for Christ's glory adds another dimension to submission. We are submitting not just to our employer or husband or parent, but to the Lord, because of our love and gratitude for him.

(Lorne Sanny, "The Right Way to Respond to Authority," Discipleship Journal - March/April 1982)
