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

Sometimes we don’t want to follow the boss’s order or a directive we don’t understand. Warren suggests, not only that we should obey right away whether we understand or not, but that “obedience unlocks understanding” In other words, when we do what we’re asked to do we very likely will come to understand the reasons why in due time. We must not wait to obey, because “Delayed obedience is no obedience at all.” Obedience should be a first response.

Jesus: “If you love me, obey my commandments.” (John 14:15)

Without delay I hurry to obey your commands. (Psalm 119:60)
