Too often, people think of God’s commands as being negative or restrictive. They feel that God’s law holds them back. For them, God’s restrictions keep them from living life as they want, doing what they want to do. In a sense that is true. However, to view God’s commandments as restrictive or negative misses the point of God’s giving us rules as a demonstration of His love for us.
