What is obedience?

I read this quote somewhere…sometime. I’m not sure to whom the credit should go, but I still want to share it with you.

Obedience always involves sacrifice, but sacrifice is not always obedience.

What are your thoughts on this? I’d love your insight.

  1. Sweet! Oh sweet baby Jesus, I’m tempted to declare I have no idea and move on without a second thought. It sounds scary can we just not venture there today, or ever…j/k it’s good… that thought I will have to think about, it may take some mulling over, maybe meditation…after I write my paper though! That’s good…really good! I’ll be back later

  2. I think it’s from I Sam. 15:22. I remember one of my children being very adept at doing everything else besides what he was asked to do (and they were GOOD things). This is a scripture that I used often to remind him.

    I know I’m guilty of doing “good things” rather than the what I KNOW are the right things. Maybe it makes us feel better?

    Good reminder!
