Walking in the ways of the Lord will lead to the blessings that are described in Deuteronomy 28. It is so important to make wise choices in order to live a good, healthy life.
Unwise choices are dangerous because of the consequences that may occur. Some of these consequences may be broken relationships, unwanted pregnancy, a night in the drunk tank, a tainted reputation, emotional pain, or financial instability. However, when we make wise choices, our relationships tend to be healthier, our criminal record remains unblemished, we tend to develop a reputation for being a generally good person, and we tend to be better off financially.
God wants us to live the best life that we can possibly live and that is why he has given us his law. He has told us how to obtain a good life and that is by striving to live like Jesus did.
