“The Blessings of Obedience”

Key Verse

“Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.” Colossians 3:20

Text — Colossians 3:20-24


Sandra is a well-behaved little girl; her parents and people around her always commend her for her good behaviour and respect for elders. She wakes up early in the morning and greets her parents, and she is always ready to run errands for them without complaining. As a result of her obedience, God blessed her memory that she was able to have excellent grades in her academic work.

Are you like Sandra? Do people know you as an obedient child? Or do they know you as the stubborn child on the street or in the community where you reside? The instruction of God to families on the role of parents and children in the family is that children must obey their parents in all things. This means you are not to pick and choose the instruction to obey especially when it is not sinful. You are to always be obedient because it is what pleases the Lord.
If you desire to please the Lord at all times, you must obey your parents in all things. Also know that there are lots of blessings that follow obedience; as you do, the Lord will bless you.
