God loves you. And this is love: he gives you his commandments. He gives you his Law. And his Law is not burdensome. It is a BLESSING. Because you know what? Here’s the thing: all those veggies and bed times and homework and long sermons DO help us grow up to be joyous people. And so too, when we hear God’s law, and live by it, will it bring us joy.
