Scripture Gives Me Boundaries

Many of us don't like boundaries and guardrails. We don't enjoy being given limitations or having rules dictated to us. So it's only natural for many of us to be uncomfortable with what we perceive as "regulations" in scripture. It causes to have a negative view of God's guidelines for our lives and to balk at "being told what to do." But the boundaries God sets for us in His Word are actually for our benefit - they're there to make our lives better. So how do I change the negative perception I have about the "rules" I see in scripture? And how do I become more consistent in living within those boundaries?

Scripture References: Deuteronomy 4:40, Luke 15:4, Colossians 3:16, James 1:22, Ephesians 5:17, 1 John 5:3, Galatians 5:22-23, Psalms 119:105

Maybe I've never actually read the Bible before. Maybe I've read bits and pieces but never really let the words sink in. Maybe I used to read it often, but now it's a book I rarely pick up. No matter what your past experience with God's Word has been, we invite you to join us on a journey to revisit scripture (or maybe dive in for the first time) as we discover why the words of this ancient book are still so relevant for us today.
