When we are obedient to God, nothing else matters. This may seem harsh, but we must have the mindset that bringing glory to God is more important than anything else in our lives. Jesus modeled this in Mark 3:33 when His mother and brothers came to see Him, “Who are my mother and my brother’s?” he asked. When it came to serving God the Father, everything else came second. This is a hard notion to comprehend, much less put into practice, but it is the expectation from God’s perspective.
