Sometimes it feels like God gives us too many commandments, but the truth is there is a good reason behind them.

Key Points:

  • It can sometimes feel like God gives us instructions on everything. God can come off as bossy.
  • God’s commands are not without good reason! They are like warning labels on household products.
  • God’s commands protect us and also show us how to live the kind of lives he wants for us – the best lives.
  • Instead of looking at God’s commands like rules to keep, look at them like the best advice you’ll ever get.

Quote This:

Psalm 19:7 The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
