31 Days of delight; Day 10

 

 1 Samuel 15:22 

But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.  NIV

 

God delights in us listening to and acting on what He tells us.  He tells us things to do because He can see what we can't:  like a parent who can see a child will fall into a puddle if he doesn't change his direction.  God delights when we obey because He knows the good things we will find on the right path, the path He directs us to.

 

 

Do you think all God wants are sacrifices— empty rituals just for show?He wants you to listen to him!  Plain listening is the thing,  not staging a lavish religious production. MSG

 Samuel said, "Has the LORD as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. New American Standard bible

 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. King James
