Everyone was taught to be obedient, at our house, school, church and even in our workplace. As a child it is our duty to obey and as we grow, we learn to rationalize.
It’s always easy to advice people to obey, but the hard part is when you put yourself on that situation and you were told to obey…and even harder is to put that into action.
Recently, something had lead me to a realization that obeying is merely giving up your desires, your plans, your thoughts and even your character to something that’s obviously better than yours. It was the act of accepting and believing that someone up there is better than you. It was turning down your ego, accepting and believing that you cannot be the architect of your own destiny.
He said, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46).
“If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
