Why the Law/s?

May I suggest two reasons for God's laws that took me a long time to discover:

1. A law reveals the nature of the law-giver! Behind any law is intent--critical for understanding the reason/s for the law.

2. Laws are for training purposes. Once I master what I should be doing, it becomes second nature to do them as long as I will to obey.

if I get bogged down in ceremony without my heart being drawn closer to the Law Giver, I not only fail the Law Giver's intent, but I deceive myself.

Lots of implications, and plenty of Old and New Testament Scripture passages speak to this point.
