It is in my nature to challenge rules. I’m not sure what it is, but I have a desire to question, pry, and pick at rules and the way that things are done. Of course, this has led to frustration and rebellion many times over. There are times when a question to authority is healthy, yet other times when it is out of line.
God has reason for rules and instruction:
The instructions of the LORD are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple. The commandments of the LORD are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are clear,
giving insight for living. Reverence for the LORD is pure,
The laws of the LORD are true;
each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
When we think of the law, we often think of something that keeps us from having fun. But there we see the opposite – law that revives us, makes us wise, gives joy to the heart, gives light to the eyes, warns us, and rewards us.
That’s because God’s laws are guidelines and lights for our path, rather than chains on our hands and feet. They point at danger and warn us, then point at success and guide us.
