Obedience is one of the most difficult challenges in life. For all humans obedience determines their success and quality of life if they choose to do what is right. I myself was very ignorant to this fact until I realize that if I was obedient to ChristIi could have been much more successful in life with a better quality of life.
When you study the ten commandments we see laws that protect us from doing wrong and that we should obey. It states clearly “thou shalt not” so when we do not obey means consequences follow that can obstruct happiness and the quality of your life. Let me give you an example, thou shalt not steal. It says clearly a wrongful act. But in today’s political correctness they call stealing an unauthorized taking of something that is not yours. Another example that makes most people in the world guilty is “Thou shalt not commit adultery” the breaking of this law has destroyed families and has children being brought up in a house without love, Children seeing father or mother being with some other person than their biological mother and father. Most people are scared to admit it but being afraid to confront the truth and correcting it makes the reality much worse.
As humans we deny truth and live comfortable in sin which is dangerous and then wrong becomes right. The last example I will give you is to lie. This sin is the most dangerous sin because after a lie is established it protects itself by continuing to tell more lies to defend the last lie. A lie was told to Eve in the Garden of Eden, then the disobedient act was given to stupid Adam which establishes women as man’s weakness. And from hence forth we all are living in the world of a big mess which only Jesus Christ can cure.
