This quote was used in the Gospel Principles class today at church (that’s a type of Sunday School class in my church). The topic was obedience and we were asked to ponder why we are obedient. Are we obedient because we fear the Lord and the consequences if we do not keep His commandments? Or are we obedient because we love the Lord? Do we pick and choose which commandments to keep, justifying our choices? How does the world influence our obedience? What blessings come from our obedience? Things to ponder.
