Why did G-d give us so many rules?

by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg

Why is it important for one who is boating across a stormy sea to have so many rules: you have to stand here, but not there; you have to face the sails this way, not the other; you can't jump into the stormy, shark-infested water for a pleasure dip right now, etc.

G-d was kind enough to tell us how to navigate our lives through the turbulent waters of this world... the goal is to reach the other side as a spiritual person who has completed his or her mission in this world
You get the idea...?

G-d was kind enough to tell us how to navigate our lives through the turbulent waters of this world. The goal is to reach the other side as a spiritual person who has completed his or her mission in this world, and to receive the deserved reward.
