What motivates the good that you do? As a child it was the list your mother or father and other authorities gave to you. The list was obeyed because of the consequences if you didn’t. My parents would call this “cause and effect.” Good choices produce good rewards. God works that way as well, however, there is a difference between God’s LAW and His laws. One is a guiding principle and the other an application. It is much better when we follow God as a matter of the heart. Then “we” make the list.
