By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward. Psalm 19:11
There are many very good reasons why the Word of God cautions us about certain things in life: for our protection. How often, though, do you hear people say that the Bible restricts us from doing things? God knows mankind and our tendencies, appetites, desires, and thinking. He understands how we were wired because He wired us that way. So then, when He warns us not to do something, it’s for our own good! Often He’ll even tell us why it’s not good to do it.
Thank God for his many cautions and warnings in the Bible that are able to keep us from falling if we obey.
