Quick Overview

Most of us feel uncomfortable when someone who has done something for us continually reminds us of that special gesture.  We are appreciative, but we don’t want to feel beholden to anyone.  We don’t want to be made to feel as though we owe them anything more than a debt of gratitude.  If we aren’t careful, that same way of thinking can affect how we think about God and His right to command our obedience and worship.  God has the right to dictate what we are to think, how we are to behave, how we are to dress, what we are to say, where we are to go, with whom we are to associate, and what we are to do because He is not our handiwork, but we are His.  Those of us who are parents have the right to expect our children to obey our rules, be loyal to our household, uphold our family values, etc.  If we as imperfect beings have the right to demand complete obedience from our children, how much more does our perfectly holy and righteous Father have the right to demand the same from us?
