Sometimes when we try to do the right thing or obey God, things don't turn out like we thought they would. So why should we obey God? Is it just so we feel better about ourselves? Do we obey just to receive a blessing from God?
We obey God not just to receive a blessing. but to be a blessing. Thankfully our Savior, Jesus, saw obedience the same way when He walked into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. His obedience to God's plan has blessed all of us.
We may never know how our obedience to God impacted someone else's life.
- being honest at work or school when others aren't
- forgiving someone even when they don't deserve it
- being kind & compassionate to those on the fringes of society
- loving & valuing others to show they have intrinsic value.
What area in your life do you need to be obedient to God? How could your obedience bless someone else?
