Obediance is better than sacrifice


1 Samuel 15v22 - and Samuel said " Has the Lord as gr8 delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold to obey is better than sacrifice and 2 listen than the fat of rams.
As d Here vi ons vra om iets te doen - wat ook al - en om een of ander rede is ons ongemaklik oor die opdrag, hetsy mens lui is, bang, ens en mens doen ander dinge wat goed en reg lyk en offer dinge op wat d Here nie voor gevra het nie, gaan bedien waar ons nie geroep is nie, is als goed en mooi maar is nie die ding wat die Here voor gevra het nie, bring ons hardships oor onsself en ander. Bv toe Saul nie vir die Here geluister het en die koning doodgemaak het soos die Here hom instruksie gegee het nie ,het sy volk bje swaar gekry. En dit agv sy ongehoorsaamheid.  
Obedience is doing the will and seeking 2 please God.
Sacrifice is seeking to cool off the anger of God.
Disobedience results in a need 2 sacrifice- obedience prevents the need 4 sacrifice.
Obedience is the key 2 a life of joy.
Sacrifice implies a dry, joyless required kind of service that God does not enjoy (Hebr 10.6) therefor when He came into the world He said "...sacrifice and offering You did not desire but a body You have prepared 4 Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure..."
