The scripture for today is Proverbs 3:1-2
Proverbs 3:1-2 My son do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.
The instructions of God were not given as arbitrary rules to follow; they flow from His heart of love. The moral law of God is the codification of the love of God. It is an expression of His character which is given to us to ensure that we live a life of happiness, love, and harmony with God and our fellow man. The enemy, who hates God and man, seeks to draw as many as possible away from God's desired end for humanity. It is the love of God that instructs us and gives us guideposts to lead us into "long life and peace." Our obedience to God's instructions is an acknowledgment to Him that we "get it;" that we understand how much He loves us and desires our happiness and well-being. “A prosperous and happy life is the reward of obeying God's commandments.” Family Bible Notes
