Show me you love me by being obedient

The other night I was putting my ten year old to bed at 8:30 pm.  He felt that was cruel and unusual punishment, but we are out of town, had been traveling a long way, and I was exhausted! After many attempts to help him understand why I would demand such a harsh and completely rediculous request.  I begged him, "can you please just show me you love me by being obedient."  

Immediately I understood that sometimes that is exactly what God asks of us.  It doesn't matter if we understand the why, sometimes we are incapable of understanding.  All that matters is that when we hear him ask something of us, we respond in obedience.
