Let me explain what you are about to see. In picture one, you can see the 8 plate in his knee. This device is inserted in a growth plate and will turn Ethan's leg facing forward, as opposed to the slightly twisted way in which it wants to grow. Obviously, the fixator looms large in the picture, but you can make out the tibia break and the fibula break ... if you look hard enough. Right above his ankle, you will notice a screw! Yep, it looks exactly like someone simply set a screw on top of the X-ray, but this is a part of his new hardware. The screw simply keeps the tibia and fibula growing together. You can see the pins holding his tibia as well, and the wires that you see are passing through his leg, just below the knee, and crisscrossed through his foot; these provided stability.
What is our Lord saying here? He doesn't want empty words or an outward show of our affections toward him. What does He want then?
1 Samuel 15:22: 22And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
