Obedience.  In this freewheeling society, one that shuns rules and wants to throw off the mantle of religion, a society that fights to redefine terms and change basic agreed-upon traditions and understandings that are centuries old, "obedience" becomes an offensive word.  It holds you to account.  It means you owe something to someone over you, perhaps a parent or a boss or a legal system that requires you follow the speed limits or contracted agreements.   In all reality, obedience to a set of rules and expectations may keep you from any number of problem outcomes--don't steal, so don't go to jail; don't pull on the wrong strap and don't end up under the load of wood; don't play with knives, and don't end up in the hospital.  Obedience to workplace rules, road rules, family rules, and any other number of codes, statutes, ordinances, and laws serves to protect you and others.  Following God's rules keeps our relationship with God both open and free; doing evil may get you a short goal, but brings destruction to your relationship with Him, just like breaking trust with a family member can harm or destroy your relationship with that person.  Obedience.  That is the fenceline of protection to keep you safe in the pasture that the Master has prepared to shelter and provide for you.
