For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”.  Galatians 5:14. Just as the rules of the road are for our benefit and protection, so are God’s commands. Because He loves us, He has given them to us for our benefit. As we apply God’s Word to our hearts, let’s keep in mind that the God of grace has given us His guidelines to help us grow in our love for Him and our concern for others.
