Weekly Reflection


"Obedience"


Obedience to God requires, each time, a real and true conversion.  There is a page in the Bible that is like a poem on 'obedience and conversion' and which is worth listening to again, at least in part, because as word of God it is worth more than any human consideration.  Moses is talking to the people and says: "If you return to Yahweh your God, if with all your heart and with all your soul you obey his voice... then Yahweh your God.. will have pity on you.. you will obey the voice of Yahweh your God and you will put all his commandments into practice... Yahweh will delight in your prosperity... if you obey the voice of Yahweh your God, by keeping his commandments...if you return to Yahweh your God with all your heart and soul'(Dt 30:2-10).  The same formula applied to the love of God is applied to obedience; it must be done 'with all one's heart and with all one's soul'.
