Yesterday evening, we were visited by one of the men in our church, our home teacher. Every month he try to visit us. And whenever he come by, he give lessons about spirituality and see to it that everything is fine with us. Yesterday was one of the unforgettable visits he did. He talked about obedience and he shared some stories that really inspired me and pierced my soul. One of the stories that I really like about obedience is "Noah and the flood in the Old Testament". I am sure you know the story already. When the people became wicked and they would not listen to the Lord during the time of Noah the Lord decided to fill the earth with water and remove all wickedness. Because Noah and his family were the only ones that listen they were the only ones protected from the flood and blessed with prosperity. In my life, I also have experiences from being obedient and disobedient. Its simple, if you obey the commandments we will be blessed. I am not only talking about the Lord's commandments, but also the laws and principles that we are suppose to comply with in our lives, may it be in school, work, community or home. I have some wonderful experiences from being obedient that I am truly grateful for doing it. And I would not deny that I also have experiences from being disobedient and I am not happy with it. But those are lessons in life that helps me know more about the importance of being obedient at all times. Life is too short to be disobedient. Remember, obedience brings a deep, inward joy, happiness and peacefulness in our lives.
