Experience can be a wonderful instructor provided a man is willing to learn from his mistakes. You should have a pretty good guess, after their experiences with disobedience, how the following would encourage you to live obediently: 

  • Adam
  • Abraham
  • Lot
  • Saul
  • Moses
  • Dathan, Abiram, and their families
  • Achan and his family
  • Samson
  • Saul
  • Jonah
  • The million men (approx.) who died in the desert on their way to the Promised Land

Obedience is far more than just avoiding consequences. Obedience to the Lord and His Word is where freedom is. “And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts” (Psalms 119:45). 

Walking with the Lord obediently, with the desire to please Him, is where sweetness of fellowship with Christ is. “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalms 16:11).
