A good military commander understands the value of discipline. He also knows the importance of good morale. Do these goals seem to be in conflict? Do undisciplined troops ever have good morale? You see passages in the Bible comparing believers to soldiers. Do you take this to imply that I am a military commander? Do you think I care about discipline? Do you think that I also care about morale? I have called you to rejoice. I wouldn’t expect this to be important to you if it wasn’t important to me as well. This isn’t something that can be issued as a command. A good commander knows that he must create the conditions to bring it forth, as I have done for you.
