A Life of Obedience – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1746 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Vonette Z. Bright, and it is, “A life of obedience is not a life of following a list of do’s and don’ts, but it is allowing God to be original in our lives.”
A Life Of Obedience
Some picture obedience as the same as following a strict list of rules and regulations—a list of do’s and don’ts. That is not obedience but legalism. On the contrary, obedience is when we willingly and joyfully follow the precepts found in God’s Word. We follow them, not because we are forced to, but because we desire to please our creator.
God only wants what is best for us, and only God ultimately knows what is best. Therefore, our desire to please God must be stronger than our desire to please ourselves. When we follow His precepts because of our love for Him, we can experience the rich and satisfying life that Jesus desires for us. Therefore, we must guard that obedience does not turn to pride but is driven out of our love for God and others.
Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.
As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
