When God tells you to do something, you better do it. Sometimes it may not be the easiest thing to do. It may be something that you hate to do. It may be something that nobody else wants you to do. Or it may be something that nobody else is willing to do. But if you want to live a happy life, you have to do it.
I was talking to somebody a long time ago about why we should do what God wants. I told him that I can be used by God, or I cannot be used by God and to me being used by God is way more fun. Yes, it's what God wants and it makes Him happy, but, selfishly, it's just fun and exciting. JM
