Reflection: The most important thing is to obey...


Growing up, obedience was emphasized, and the intricate importance of obeying is indeed selecting who to obey… consequently, as we obey, we have a responsibility to obey the right persons and in more significant decisions, evaluate what to obey.

Repeatedly, we witness public servants, leaders, our families and ourselves in the position “I was only obeying orders”, sometimes and indeed on most occasions, an excuse.

None of us chooses our end really, a king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but remember that even when those who note u be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you can’t say "but I was told by another to do thus" or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

From the movie, Kingdom of Heaven

As we make choices who to obey, God be with us all…
