How long would you like to live? It depends, doesn’t it, on whether that long life is free of hurt and pain and confusion, and instead filled with joy. How would you like to have a little more peace in your life? What if I could tell you of a way you could have both of these?
Well, there is a way. It’s found in the Bible. It is a special revelation about the way life works—a special revelation of God to mankind about our nature, God’s nature, and how these two natures interact on a day-to-day basis. It is called the Law.
Somehow, that poses a big problem in people’s minds. They look at the Law and see a set of shackles to be loosed from instead of the basis of true wisdom and a guide to long life and peace. You’ll see just what I’m talking about in Proverbs 3:1.
