There is great reward in keeping the law of the Lord. Keep me from sin and forgive me. I have been forgiven much. Let my sin not rule over me. (Psalm 19)
Don’t be distracted from the goal. There is only one goal to aim at, Jesus. He is the Way; you are on the paths of righteousness for His sake, not yours. Your goal should never be to get your way in any given situation. Your goal should the Way.
