Keep my commands and live. (Proverbs 7:2a)
People often think that God takes all the fun out of life. That with all His commandments and expectations, life is somehow less than it can be.
Not even remotely true.
God fills life. His commandments add fullness. There is freedom in obedience.
God’s instructions aren’t just “do not,” but “do.”
Do pursue Him.
Do honor Him.
Do love Him and others.
Do let Him change and grow you.
Do know how much He loves you, how He has sacrificed for you, what He has planned for you.
