Understanding can wait; obedience can’t. (Rick Warren, pastor and author)

Do you remember when your mother or father answered your “why” question with “Because I say so”? It was never a satisfactory answer, of course, but Warren suggests the attitude we ought to have with those who are in authority. We may have to wait to understand, but obedience may well lead to it.

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 ).
