Your Arms Too Short to Box with God

Some of you may remember the Broadway play Your Arms Are Too Short to Box with God.  That sentiment has been used in popular culture -- including numerous rap and hip-hop artists.  But the idea can be traced back to the scriptures:

It is dangerous and turns out badly for you to keep kicking against the goads [to keep offering vain and perilous resistance].

Acts 26:14 [AMP]

Saul of Tarsus (before he became the Apostle Paul) was warned by Jesus of the danger of resisting the will of God. Consider, however, how often we do that very thing.  This classic podcast reminds us that fighting against the things of God can only lead to hurting yourself.
