Imitating Christ - #25

To be obedient, to live under a superior - not seeking our own way - is great virtue.  It is safer to obey orders than to give them.  Many obey more out of necessity than for charity's sake.  These find it burdensome and complain easily;  but they will never have liberty of spirit until they submit wholly to authority for the love of God.

Go where you will, but you will never find rest except in humble obedience to the rule of your superior.  Many are deceived by thinking that a change of location will solve their difficulties.
