Daily Scripture: Mediator of the New Covenant (Hebrews 8:1-12)

Question 3

As the children of Israel keep and practice the law, they will become wise and filled with understanding.  In other words, doing God’s Word results in wisdom.  How might you answer someone who first wants to “feel” like obeying God before they change their behavior to obey?
