The context of this statement is totally different, as is the actual point being made, but it struck me that lifting it from its context and giving it another sense, it applies exactly the point of the devotional: “you look at life differently when you write the rules than when you have to submit to them.” (Original link: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/05/crb-sending-jobs-overseas.php )

The faithful submit to God’s rules. Rather than a have-to burden, they are the pleasure and source of life. The obedient indeed look at life and at God’s will in an entirely different way than others who chafe and rebel.
