Deuteronomy 6:2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.God gave commandments so the people could show their love and respect for Him by their desire to please Him. If you love God it will show. You will fail. You can’t keep the commandments. You can realize when you sin that He has made a way to forgive you. Do you love God? Does it show by the hunger you have to please Him? Do you think of Him? Is He on your heart and mind as you make decisions. Do you love God?
