Daily Devotion

21 October 

And Samuel said, “Has 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 listen than the fat of rams.” (1 Samuel 15:22, ESV)

Is God more impressed with us giving up our Sunday mornings for church or with our desire to be with His people, which He commanded? Is He more impressed that we give of ourselves to look good in front of others, or with our honest desire to serve others as He commanded? The point is in our attitude, not so much as in what we do. Do you have the right motivation in following Christ?

Prayer: Lord, may my obedience be an act of worshiping you and not an attempt to impress you and those around me.
