a. natural law- the way God created the universe
b. spiritual law- what you do comes back to you in this life and in eternity (3:25, Gal. 6:7-8)
This principle works in the area of:
1. Our Personal Life (18-21)
These commandments are not given to oppress us, but to free us and make our lives better.
Our relationships should be defined by two things:
a. We should act with integrity toward others.
b. We should treat others with respect.
2. Our Work Life (22-24)
Work hard, with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.
If you have people working for you, treat them with honor.
Pay them well.
3. Our Spiritual Life (3:25-4:1)
You cannot sin and get away with it.
This is not God's way of getting even. It is simply the way the world works.
Depending on the way you live, you may consider this principle a promise, or a threat.
