I do not have much to say about today’s reading. I do have a thought from last night’s dinner conversation with friends… Judgement from God comes as much from what we do as what we don’t do. Obedience comes from following God (not necessary the rules) and being willing to deal with the consequences of where He leads us. If you were asked to renounce your faith or be imprisoned, would you be obedient or would you avoid prison? My initial answer is simple, but what if prison meant physical and emotional torture? Obedience requires much more than rule following, it requires submission to the plan God has before us and being willing to accept an outcome which may not be for our personal best interest. We must accept where God leads us and realize the impact His plan will have in the light of eternity.
