Unhesitating Obedience

The first step of humility is unhesitating obedience, which comes naturally to those who cherish Christ above all. RB 5:1-2

Unhesitating obedience is a radical demand and calls for a radical response. This type of obedience comes from the heart and is rooted in listening to God. We strive to let go of our superficial desires and listen with the ear of the heart. We listen to God so that we know how to respond in love to God’s will. This type of listening helps us experience an interior freedom. As we acquire even a small portion of this interior freedom our response to God and to others will be joyful and generous.
