The Benefits of Obedience # 2

:22 For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.
:23 But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.'
:24 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.
:25 Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them.
:26 Yet they did not obey Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.
:27 “Therefore you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you.

:48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

:23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.
:24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you.
:25 Let your eyes look straight ahead and your eyelids look right before you.
:26 Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established.
:27 Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil.
