In a world where speed limits, parking restrictions, and seat belts are often seen as inconveniences that limit our freedom, it's easy to get lost in the mindset that commandments only exist because God "said so." In this engaging presentation, John Bytheway reminds us why our Heavenly Father gives commandments—because He loves us—and the best rest reason for obeying those commandments.
With his signature style of scriptural stories, quotations from Church leaders, and a good dose of humor, Brother Bytheway explores three reasons why we obey—because we ought to (it's the law), because we want to (because of consequences), and because we'd love to (because someone cares). He encourages listeners to remember the love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for them and to choose to obey for the best reason—because we love Them too.

What a wonderful talk on keeping the commandments and the Lord's love for us! Teen and adults will laugh their way through this talk while learning (and being reminded) about important gospel doctrine. I love all of his talks, and recommend them, as well as this one to everybody!
great talk about motivation of keeping the commandments.
Thank you for the insight into how to work with my Teens. I need to teach more like Heavenly Father and help them understand that there are boundaries because He loves us.
Whether you’re 15 or in your fifties (like me), this is an inspiring and thought-provoking (and humorous) talk on God’s love and commandments.
Just listened to John’s newest talk on CD. Another great one! He draws easy to understand analogies that help you understand why living the gospel is the easiest way to live your life. Even though his talks are generally directed to the youth and young adults, I always gain something valuable from them as an older adult. Every youth member should hear this talk as an introduction to their theme for the year! Well worth it!
