The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Psalms 19: 7-11
God’s laws revive us, make us wise, bring joy to the heart, giving insight, warn us and reward us. God’s laws are guide lines and lights for our path, rather than chains on our hands and feet. They point at danger to warn us, and then point at success to guide us.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God, Mat 4:4
