Ever been out to a great restaurant only to receive subpar service?
How about the opposite? An average restaurant with impeccable service?
One of my most memorable meals was with my wife on a vacation in Mexico. We sat atop a deck viewing the Pacific Ocean with two other couples.
I remember hearing this motivating and inspirational message about being obedient.
The speaker raised an interesting question while retelling the story of Saul / Paul’s conversion in the book of acts.He commended Ananias for his obedience. He was the guy whom God called to minister to Saul (a huge enemy of Jesus followers at the time).
“But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”
Then Ananias went…” (Acts 9.15-17, NLT)
It’s an amazing story really. Saul is healed, converted, baptized and gets a name change in a matter of moments.

Do you remember the Hans Christian Anderson story of the Emperor’s New Clothes?
You know, it’s the one about the rich and vain fashionista ruler who wore a new outfit every hour of every day?
Two swindlers came to town claiming to be the best fashion designers of their time. They also claimed to work with the finest cloth ever created.
There was one catch.
