William Carey [1761 – 1834] ~ God asked him to go to India. He went even though he had 3 small children but his dad was annoyed with this decision of his.

How was Carey obedient to the words of Jesus?

He preferred Jesus above his own dad. Sometimes a profession of faith in Christ leads to being shunned by the rest of the family. Carey loved the Lord but his actions appeared to hate his family because he didn’t do what they wanted but did what God approved.

Sometimes the world can be so alluring that we can get conformed in its ways. Are we willing to make a commitment like Joshua made in Joshua 24: 15 ‘… But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.’ [Ref. Matthew 6: 24]
