Romans 9: 31-32 ” …but Israel, who pursued a Law of righteousness, has not attained it. Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone.”

We like to take the commandments from God and embellish them…piling on things that were never given in the first place. Then if we can only keep this long list of “don’t does”, we can somehow “work” our way to heaven. But this will never happen, and we will fail spiritually…our eyes on our works, and off of Jesus.
