Faith R. English's comment on 2015-03-24 18:03:33:

We are to be aware that we are given by God a life to be lived. We were also given by God the freedom to choose how we will live it. While we are living it we are given guidelines to help us to decide in what fashion we live. Some will follow and some will reject or ignore the guidelines. We are instructed that there will be a judgement day. So this chapter informs us of our life 's journey to help us make the correct choice.
