    We have the right to choose, but the consequences aren’t ours to determine.

    In this episode, we discuss stories of obedience and consequences in the scriptures, in the lives of Church leaders, and even in the life of our host, Nicole.

    L. Tom Perry said:

    Those who rely solely on themselves and follow only their own desires and self-inclinations are so limited when compared to those who follow God and tap into His insight, power, and gifts. It has been said that someone who is all wrapped up in himself or herself makes a very small package. Strong, proactive obedience is anything but weak or passive. It is the means by which we declare our faith in God and qualify ourselves to receive the powers of heaven. Obedience is a choice. It is a choice between our own limited knowledge and power and God’s unlimited wisdom and omnipotence.

    How have the consequences of obedience to God shaped your life? Leave a comment.
