Obedience – Part 6

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ

Colossians 3:23

Do you ever have to re-do a job you did the wrong way?

Before carrying out a task, an obedient person will make sure that he has all the information on how to do it.  He will know what questions to ask in order to clarify instructions, and he will know at what points to check back with his authority to make sure he is doing the job the right way.  Disobedience is adding your own will or ideas to a job when you are not sure they are in harmony with the precise instructions of your authority.

It’s crucial to stay focused on a task.  When we get sidetracked or try to find short-cuts, we diminish the importance of the mission.
