For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
So often, I am quick to point out the breaking of the rules in the family. The power of the law is that it points out sin, but it does not bring life or a relationship that is closer to the Father. Forgiveness, through grace; this brings hope and does both. It is by grace that we are drawn to our knees, bringing us into a relationship of life with the Father.
