Obedience is better than sacrifice!

In the book of Samuel in the old testament, King Saul disobeyed God's command to destroy everything of the Amalekites and thus lost favor with God. He sought the approval of his men instead of God's approval. As Christians, sometimes we think that outward signs of goodness and the approval of men are what counts but how truly wrong we are when we think that!

 
We all want to be esteemed among our peers, families and work mates. We would like them to see us as good, hardworking people. However God is the only one who sees directly into our hearts and knows the intention behind our every thought word and deed! Do not seek praise and flattery from men as they are deceptive. Rather seek to faithfully keep God's commandments.  There is nothing more pleasing to God than obedience to him in humility. May the blessed virgin Mary be your model in this. God bless you all!
