Lead Like Moses Devotional 51

by David Joynt on August 01, 2022


DEUTERONOMY 6:3 | Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe them diligently, so that it may go well with you and so that you may multiply greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you.

Law can be rooted in love. This can be one of the hardest things for children to understand about family rules. Law is rooted in love when it restricts freedom in the name of protecting life. God’s laws are a kind of trellis, giving us support and direction, so the vine of our lives develops into a shape that has many virtues.

By preventing misuse of our freedoms that diminishes them, our laws can be freedom enhancers. In this case, law is based in love.

Can you point to a law that restricts freedom in the name of both love and freedom?
