Now . . . Moses saw that the people were unrestrained. (Exodus 32:25)
Just as every game necessitates a set of rules, life requires restraints. Without laws, life quickly deteriorates into anarchy. Whether in civil government, business, or the home, if there are no restraints there will be lawlessness and rebellion.
For the most part, man has proven to be incompetent in developing proper restraints without the moral laws of God, which are found in His Word, the Bible. Again, whether in civil government, business, or the home, we will resolve into lasciviousness and turmoil without restraints. In man’s attempt to eradicate God’s Ten Commandments, man has imposed literally countless laws. However, man’s laws are based on emotional reaction, while God’s laws are founded on His love for His creation. Man’s laws seek judgment or revenge; God’s laws are based on justice and mercy.
Therefore, make sure that the moral laws of God are established in your community, business and home. Live by them. Teach them. Model and prosper by them. Remember the consequences paid by the nation of Israel when left unrestrained.
