Psalms 19:7-8 -- On the Perfect Law

"The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes."
Psalms 19:7-8

I love the idea of a perfect law. :)  Our laws and our legal systems seem so flawed sometimes, with innocent people going to jail, corruption, unequal enforcement, etc.  It's not something that we can always say that we respect.  God's law is vastly different.  I love how it says that his statutes rejoice the heart.  I think that is true.  His laws are designed to protect us and to bring us joy.  When we keep them, we *will* be happier.  Happier, and converted, and wise, and enlightened.  I love that.  It isn't something that we get from other laws, whether in our nations, our schools, our homes (at least not always), or our workplaces.

Today, let's rejoice that we have a perfect law to follow.  One that is designed to lift us up and make us, and everyone else, better, stronger, faster... like the six million dollar man with a bunch of extra zeroes.  Well, okay, maybe not like that, but amazingly super cool anyway. :)  Let's jump in and follow God's law, and learn all this wisdom and enlightenment stuff.  And the conversion, and the joy. :)
