Bringing Delight to God
Today’s reading: Deuteronomy 30:1-32:47
Parents (as well as other authority figures in our lives, like teachers) can be hard task masters, difficult to please. God is not so. Although He is perfect and His law demands perfection, He is delighted with obedience in His children. Our obedience begins with repentance and faith in His Son who died for our sins and lives for our sanctification.
