STOP AND THINK – Only one decision pleases God: obedience. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)
In the universal struggle of mankind to know and please God, men have developed many different images of God and established the “rules” they think they must follow to please Him. Perhaps, it’s too simple a thought, but the Bible is clear: what God wants of His followers is obedience to His will and Word.
Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22)
