Scripture is so simple yet we make it so complicated
Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
I think maybe times we want to see things from a worldly point of view. But the Lord wants to take you to a higher place, He wants you to see things from spiritual standpoint. I think when you guard his teachings it’s a way of transforming your heart.
Romans 12:2 Do not allow 1current religious tradition to mold you into its pattern of reasoning. Like an inspired artist, give attention to the detail of God’s desire to find expression in you. Become acquainted with perfection. To 2accommodate yourself to the delight and good pleasure of him will transform your thoughts afresh from within.
Guard his teachings but also guard your heart
