Obedience to God

Rabbi JEremy Storch

By Rabbi
Jeremy Storch

First let us look at what being obedient is: Webster's dictionary defines being obedient as being submissive to the restraint or command of authority: willing to obey. So to be obedient to someone is to be submissive and willing to obey him or her. Willing means to obey with joy. To be willing to obey means that you should have already realized what needs to be done and do it without being asked.

Man hates correction (Hebrews 12:11). I don't know anyone who enjoyed getting

spanked or grounded as a kid, but being an adult and thinking that we no longer need correction is worse, but Job 5:17 says “Blessed is the man whom God corrects”. Now it took a long time for me to see that, and sometimes I still have trouble with God's correction, but as long as I am obedient to Him He will bless me. Keep this in mind the next time God corrects you, for as Proverbs 3:12 says God disciplines those whom He loves.
