It seems contradictory to say the heart that heeds the commands is free.
But there is no freedom without rules.
Prison inmates are behind bars because they went outside the boundaries,
they disregarded the rules and lost their freedom.
God has given us His commandments so we will be free to live with Him forever.
It is easy to follow the rules we like but what about the ones we don’t like?
What is your attitude when faced with rules that are difficult to accept or follow?
