Is there a difference between being stubborn and being uncompromising?
Being stubborn is refusing to change or obey, even in the face of reason. As a Missouri mule is obstinate, so is a headstrong person resolutely standing on Self. King Saul was stubborn (1 Sam 15:22-23). Israel was/is stubborn (Deut 9:1-6, Acts 7:51-53).
Being uncompromising is refusing to alter or dilute truth, even in the face of great ridicule or pressure. The Word of God is uncompromising. Jesus Christ was uncompromising in doing the will of His Father. Therefore, a faithful follower/disciple stands with Jesus, resolved to be Christ-like (Mal 3:6a, Heb 13:8).
Stubbornness sows to the flesh while being uncompromising sows to the Spirit (Gal 6:8).
