It's hard to imagine that God had a direct relationship with the people. His very own creation. It was hard to follow the "law" during those times. God was in every aspect of the day. How you ate, slept, etc. man kept failing. Always coming short of Gods expectations. Something simular to us today. I imagine God had to wonder to himself: What will it take for these people to do things the right way? The answer was he in the form of a man. Jesus. We are all aware of the laws writen in the old testemant of the bible. We are also aware of the teachings of Christ. During this season of lent. It would not be at all wrong to give up self. Give it all to God.
