And that is how we need to see God's law, His holy word. Many see the bible as just a rule book that steals our fun and cramps our style. So we either totally ignore it or try to find ways around it. But the closer I have gotten to God through reading the Bible, I see now that He did not give us His law so He could sit back and judge whether or not we cross our T's and dot our I's. No, He gave us the law to protect us, to bless us, to prolong our lives, and to fill it with joy. As dangerous as the roads would be if there was no "law" on the road, think of how dangerous this world would be without God's law. The world is bad enough as it is, but think if there was no absolute truth to show us right from wrong; no moral compass to guide us through a self-seeking, sinful world. It would truly be hell on earth.
How we look at the law matters in how we will follow it. We should see what the psalmist saw when he wrote "Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction." Then you will realize that God is for you and His word is here to help you.
