During the War Between the States, General Lee one day sent word to Stonewall Jackson that the next time he rode in the direction of headquarters the Commander-in-Chief would be glad to see him on a matter of no great importance. General Jackson received the message and immediately prepared to leave the next morning. Rising very early, he rode the eight miles to Lee's headquarters against a storm of wind and snow, and arrived just as Lee was finishing breakfast. Much surprised, Lee inquired why Jackson had come through such a storm.

General Jackson replied: "But you said that you wished to see me. And General Lee's slightest wish is a supreme command to me."

And the Lord's slightest wish should be a supreme command to us! But often it is not.

Scripture Reference: Luke 6:46

(From a sermon by Steve Shepherd, Command And Teach These Things, 8/20/2011)
