Trust and Obey

We do not have to understand to trust. (Mark Penfold, military chaplain)

“Why?” That’s the question so often asked when an unwanted instruction is given. Children repeatedly ask “Why?” Sometimes we may just don’t want to do what we’re asked. At other times, it’s simply because we don’t understand the reason behind what we’re being told to do. Penfold’s wise counsel is helpful. If we are willing followers of someone we trust, we just do it.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
