Philippians 2:8 NASB "And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death: death on a cross."If I had simply followed the rules, things would have turned out differently! Today's verse speaks of obedience and how Jesus was obedient to the point of death! Sitting alone in my room, I began to rethink how I got there. My parents had set rules up for us to live by and I had not followed them and ended up getting punished. I remember looking out the window at my brother and the kids from the neighborhood having fun on a beautiful sunny day, but here I sat, punished for my disobedience! There are always consequences for our actions, if we follow the rules, obedient to those in authority over us, the consequences are pleasant but when we aren't obedient, we must pay the consequences for our actions. Can we imagine being obedient to the point of death? It's what Jesus did, maybe we should follow His Example for His consequences was the Resurrection and new life for each of us! peace, tom
