To Obey is Better than to Sacrifice

I have been reading through 1 Samuel for my quiet time this past few weeks. These days, I do my quiet time  during my early morning breastfeeding. Lately, this verse below has stucked on my mind: 
"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice." 1 Samuel 15:22
Being a mom has made me think of this verse through a parent's eyes. 
Now... I understand how pleasing it must be to Our Father in Heaven when His children obey Him. Help us Lord to obey you; to live our life according to your Words.

  1. I have to agree ... being parents, somehow bring us to know a bit better how obedience is a sweet offering to the Heavenly FAther.

    Thanks for sharing the verse and thought.
