God is a great parent to his children. Have you ever thought about why God gave the Ten Commandments?
They are actually a way of life for us. They keep us out of trouble in life. There is life in the commands of God. They keep us from getting hurt or hurting one another.
If we walk in His ways then we stay off the Devils territory. Paul said give no place to the devil.
When teaching your own children, you give them certain rules or commands to abide by, right? Like don’t play ball near the street or on the street. That is for their protection.
The same with our Heavenly Father He tells us and warns us by His word of certain things to not do and certain things to do to keep us out of harms way. He is a Great Heavenly Father that loves us so much. We can trust Him to know what is best for us. He is very trustworthy.
If you as a parent did not teach your child certain things to keep them from getting hurt, we would not think you were a very good parent.
Let us not be weary in well doing, for in the long run we shall reap good from following after Gods commands.
