I have been asked to speak in church on obedience.  Any talks, quotes, thoughts, etc. that come to mind that would be good to share??  Usually when I'm asked to speak on a subject I have lots of thoughts and know which direction I want to take.  This time I'm not feeling it.  I know I need to dive in and study, pray, and ponder until I do feel inspired.  But, I thought I would first see if anyone has any inspiration to share, something that comes to mind on obedience.


  1. 2 things (1) Obedience always bring blessings. We might not see the blessings as quickly as we want or even in this life, but we are always blessed when we obey. (2) Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and He knows the only way for us to be happy is to follow His laws.

    Don't know if either is helpful, but you asked. :)

  2. One of my favorite scriptures is Mosiah 3:19 and I think it has a lot to do with obedience. Willing to submit to all things the Lord sees fit to inflict upon us.
    That is a link to a bunch of quotes on obedience.
    I like that the scriptures remind us over and over that if we are obedient we will prosper in the land.
    There is the example of the stripling warriors who did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness. Alma 57:21
    Sorry I get a little carried away when people give me a gospel topic. There are other things that I was thinking of, but can't find.
    I'm excited for your talk in church. I'm sure you have many testimony building experiences about obedience from your life, and I'm looking forward to hearing them.

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm starting to feel it myself!
