Oh how I love your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies,
for it is ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers,
for your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the aged,
for I keep your precepts.
I hold back my feet from every evil way,
in order to keep your word.
I do not turn aside from your rules,
for you have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding;
therefore I hate every false way.

By nature, are you more of a law-keeper or a law-breaker? Keeping rules is easier for some than others, depending on one’s personality and life history. Thankfully, this is not the case with God’s laws. Why? Because His laws are perfect, filled with love, and we are never alone in attempting to fulfill them. That does not mean that we are perfect or keep His rules exactly all the time. We all sin. But because of Jesus, we do not have to slide into a slimy sin pit. Instead, we are promised understanding, guidance, and help in keeping God’s laws. When we do, we are blessed abundantly for our faithfulness.
