Obedience

1Sam 15: 16-23

Obedience is better than sacrifice

Soul the chosen King of Israel has gone against the will of the Lord who called him to be so. The Lord requires not sacrifices done with disobedient hearts, rather adherence to his words. Since he has rejected the command of the Lord, He too has rejected you as ruler.

How do we live? Do we keep the commandments of the Lord, or we try to please him with sacrifices and offerings (bribing the Lord)
