| All things that God gives
us is good. There are hundreds of verses in the Bible about the
goodness of God towards His creation. The only things that God
forbids are those things that can hurt us. God as our creator
knows what is the very best for us. God has given us commandments
to live by, not because he is strict and cruel, but because he
knows terrible things can happen to us if we would not have been
warned. God also wants us to obey Him so he can truly bless us.
His loving mercy still allows us to make our own choices. If
a person chooses to disobey they will have to suffer the consequences
and will most likely also lead others who are innocent to suffer.
So often people will neglect or forget about all the wonderful
things God has given to us. Instead they will deliberately choose
the things that God has forbidden, thus in the long run they
bring devastation on themselves because they did not listen.
Remember, this is what happened to our first parents in the Garden
