Blessings for Obedience

Our six-year-old granddaughter is taking riding lessons. She has had to learn to be obedient to the teacher's instructions and all else falls into place
Deut 28:1-6
If you fully obey the Lord your God by keeping all His commands I am giving you today, the Lord your God will exalt you above all nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God.
You will be blessed in your towns and in the country.
You will be blessed with many children and productive fields.
You will be blessed with fertile herds and flocks.
You will be blessed with baskets overflowing with fruit and kneading bowls filled with bread.
You will be blessed wherever you go, both in coming and in going.


  1. Great post, Jo... Many kids today have no idea what obedience means. My son and DIL in Texas do such a great job raising my granddaughters. They tell the girls that IF they start something, they HAVE to complete it. They can't do what so many kids do and that is start something and then quit..... Kids need discipline... They need obedience.

  2. She looks like she is doing a good job at riding. We could all do with more obedient kids in the world. Many parents don't seem to bothered about teaching obedience.

  3. That's just lovely, Jo .... what a scenic spot, too :)

  4. I'm glad your granddaughter is learning obedience with such a wonderful reward. She looks so cute on her pony.

  5. I agree, Betsy, your son and dil are very wise, and sound like wonderful parents. If a child is allowed to grab at something and then discard it, this will show in his adult live at more serious decisions and actions. If you aren't disciplined as a child, you end up being painfully discipled as an adult! Phew! Thanks for popping in. (((Hugs) Jo.

    diane, so true. We were quite strict disciplinarians and have two wonderful sons. They have told us countless times, they appreciate it, especially now that they are parents/parents-to-be.

    Lynda, the backdrop is the majestic Drakensberg. Beautiful, isn't it.

    Hi Janie, I'm glad too. She has a very strong character but she and her little brother thrive on the love, attention and discipline,
