We have all heard the saying that you can lead a horse to water but you can not make him drink. If you have ever tried to lead a mule you know how obstinate they can be when they set their mind to something. In Psalm 32 David tells us to not be like those animals. “Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.” (Psalm 32:9) We should not have an attitude of only doing the absolute least that is required of us. We should desire to go the extra mile to serve our Lord who has blessed us so richly.
