A Thought: With obedience, comes blessing.
As Christians, we’d rather focus on blessings than obedience which Christ requires of us. I think it’s because we perceive obedience as restriction from what we want. The truth is, the greatest blessings are experienced when we realize how much we need The Lord, and when we follow what He says, our lives are enriched in every way! Obeying His commands saves us headaches as He knows what is best for us and what we need, before we ever understand ourselves. That’s because HE IS GOD!
Deuteronomy 28:2 “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
