1 Kings 6:1-38
God valued obedience over sacrifice. To build something that can be seen is actually easier than to be obedient to God always, and a lot of times it is unseen to others. Reminded me that we can do a lot of things well, running a ministry, organising student Camp, having good big group activities and many more but if we do aim to obey God in all that we do, God will not be part of what we do.
I need to strive for excellence outwardly and inwardly. Staying close to God and allowing Him to work in my life to change me and living a life of obedience is more important than getting things done well.
Dear Jesus, help me to obey you when I work towards coming up with plans or ideas to move the ministries forward.
