“So often we give God a partial obedience. We do not dare to disobey, but we do not care to obey fully. So we compromise. We do some of what we should, thus removing the stigma of disobedience. But we refrain from the most difficult or objectionable or uncomfortable part, and thus try to get the best of both worlds.” ~ Ebenezer Erskine
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of [d]witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. (I Samuel 15:22-23 NKJV)
