Obedience: Week 1 - Devotion 2

Today’s devotion is pretty simple, but you have to agree to do it several times today. Ready?

“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts!” - Benjamin Franklin

 I don't know about you, but when I first read that it was hard to hear. Basically, it's saying, a lot of people are willing to celebrate Jesus, but not many are willing to do what it takes to follow Him.


Think About This . . . 

  • Do you think that is true that a lot of people will take the time to “celebrate” the fun with God (like Christmas), but when it’s hard to do what He asks, they don’t want to have anything to do with it?

  • What about you?  Do you want to do some partying for God, or do you want to really do what it takes to follow Him?

  • What’s the hardest part about following his “precepts” or “laws?”


Pray and ask the Lord for a desire to really follow Him and His ways (that includes His commands) today.
