Daily Nugget

   Friday, January 23rd, 2015. Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill. 
A visitor, passing through a certain department of a large shop, noticed a set of regulations written on a blackboard. He also noticed that, in several particulars, every man in the shop was disregarding them. He questioned the foreman concerning the matter. At first the man was reluctant about answering him. Finally, he said, “Those rules were written by one of the firm. He has neither wisdom nor judgment. If we should follow his directions, we would ruin a good part of the work.” In other words, the men took their own way because they lacked faith in their commander.
 
In whatever way we may characterize it, failure to obey is simply lack of faith. When we fail to obey God for whatever excuse the world gives us, whether in the giving of time or of money, in assembling together, or just praising His name, we show the world our lack of trust and faith in Him. 
Remember the words of the writer in 1 Samuel 15:22-23: “And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”

God, forgive us for choosing anything above enough faith just to obey You. Amen
