Sometimes only God knows the WHY

Reading

John 14:15: “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”

1 John 5:3: “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”

Challenge

Discuss / describe why it’s hard to follow God’s commandments, which the Word says “are not burdensome”. This week, practice setting aside your questions, and just obeying — since the bottom line is, God knows what He’s doing!

Prayer

Dear Lord, the Bible says that if we love you we’ll keep your commandments. I often find it hard to obey certain rules or guidelines because I don’t understand why You set them. Forgive me. Help me this week to obey You, which is to love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
