In today’s world, it seems people desire God’s freedom but they aren’t all that interested in following His commands. The Psalmist understood God didn’t give us commands to hold us down but to keep us safe and bring us joy. Sin brings pain, heartache, and regret–not only for the sinner, but for others as well. Stay on the pathway of faith, one designed lovingly for us by our wise heavenly Father, and we can avoid those painful potholes.
