And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don't obey, you are only fooling yourself.
For if you just listen and don't obey, it is like looking at your face in a mirror but doing nothing to improve your appearance.
You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.
But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law -- the law that sets you free -- and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.
