To yield to a higher authority or to submit one’s own ideas or desires for a superior one is a trait of humility or the state of humbleness which we chose right from our minds and hearts and thoughts.
The choice for obedience most especially when doing so makes no sense to human logic or reasoning is the fruit of choosing obedience in the basic and simple things .

I’d call such basic and simple things the revealed will of God which is explicitly stated at some point in all chapters of the Bible. To obey is better than sacrifice, than large offerings and doing things aimed at man’s approval. Obedience is the way of showing we love the Lord. Funny right next to the much quoted lines of obedience is better than sacrifice goes: stubbornness is as the sin of worshipping idols…

No one’s character is rock cast in cement or granite, we have a choice to mold it, grow, refine and shape it (under the mastery of the Holy Spirit)
Which do you choose today?

“But Samuel replied, ‘what is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to His voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams. Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshipping idols. So because you have rejected the command of the Lord, He has rejected you as King. I Samuel 15:22 & 23.
