Horses and Mules

Psalms 32:9 says, “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.”
Horses and mules can be somewhat stubborn at times. It is usually not possible to simply tell a horse or a mule what they should do and get them to do it. They have to be led around step by step by the bit that is in their mouth in order for them to know what to do.
Some people are like horses and mules. Even when told what to do they still can’t accomplish the task unless they are led step by step with constant oversight. We must be people who have enough self control that we will do right whether we are being watched or not. Don’t be like horses and mules. Listen to truth and have understanding and apply it without being forced to do so.
