Obedience is better than Sacrifice Bible Verse
1 Samuel 15:22, NIV But Samuel replied: Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
Obedience is better than Sacrifice Meaning
God is much happier with our obedience than he is with sacrifices we make without regarding Him: “To Obey is better than sacrifice.” It may sometimes seem to us like our works and acts of sacrifice, gifts, etc would really impress God, regardless of whatever else we are doing. But the reality is that if we are doing a million wonderful things but not carrying out simple acts of obedience to God, it is all in vain. If we don’t obey God, we can’t please God, and we just make our lives unnecessarily complicated. May we always remember these simple but important truths, May we enjoy the blessings of obedience to God all the days of our lives.. Amen! See Also: Bible Verses about Pleasing God

    PS: Please allow me to share 3 more verses from the hymn — #1 Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
    But his smile quickly drives it away;
    Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh nor a tear,
    Can abide while we trust and obey…. #2 But we never can prove the delights of his love
    Until all on the altar we lay;
    For the favor he shows, and the joy he bestows,
    Are for them who will trust and obey.

    #3 Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at his feet,
    Or we will walk by his side in the way;
    What he says we will do, where he sends we will go,
    Never fear, only trust and obey. ~ Amen.

    Lol. This is one of the scripture that my 6 and 4yrs knows very well. I taught them that “obedience is better than spanking”(sacrifice).

    I try to simplify the scripture; bring it to their level of understanding.

    Mom dont want to spank so its better they obey and not lose their privileges of computer time!
