Book Talk Thursday
Today we will be reviewing chapter one. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this :)
The two fundamental positions discussed by Chanski are:
1- Play your postition!
2- Win it!
The author uses the example of a soccer coach and then compares it to our role as women. As women we are to play our position and win it, meaning don't let up; keep at it!
The dominion mandate given in Genesis 1:28 charges us to subdue and rule. This will be a major point that will be focused on in this book.
We as women must tell ourselves "Win It" to the glory of God. We must resolve to put forth maximum effort to rule and subdue our daily challenges. What are some of the challenges that women face on a daily basis?
As we seek to be in our God-assigned posts as women, we hear shouts telling us to leave those posts. Some that I hear are:
"Put yourself first. If you don't love yourself, no one will." This can be a stumbling block when you are seeking to put others first and show your love through serving. There are many others. What are some that you hear?
What does "playing your position" mean to you?
Won't you join me in linking up with The Chatty Mommy?
