To obey is to be at peace. (Kip Cone, minister)
We might take our pet dog to obedience school. It’s our hope to make it easier to manage the dog. As a result, we’ll have more peace than if we have to live with a troublesome pet. How much more important for human beings to learn obedience! As Cone says, “Struggles will be manageable if we cultivate a life of obedience.”
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him (Psalm 128:1). In fact, this is love for God: to keep (obey) his commands. And his commands are not burdensome (1 John 5:3).
