I’m doing a little research, and I’d love your help.
The topic is obedience. Don’t shy away from that word, because I know some of us sort of cringe when we hear it. Doing what someone else tells me to? We are adults for goodness sakes. But obedience to the Lord is a key facet of following Him, we all know that. And we also know there are so many reasons why we don’t do it. It’s hard and complicated and has the potential to put us in awkward situations!
I’m making a list of all the reasons why we don’t obey the Lord. I’ve had some help from Priscilla Shirer, she shared some answers that her followers shared on Twitter. I thought they were pretty good! But I would also like to add to the list. So, could you do me a favor and read over her list? And if you have anything to add, leave a comment! I’d so appreciate it!
- Peer Pressure
- Lack of trust in God
- How do I begin?
- I’m too unsure
- Impatient with God’s timing
- Too busy
- I might be hearing Him wrong
- Previous disappointment
- Doubt that I’ll like His response/what He asks of me
