Deuteronomy 10:13 and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good?

Everything God instructs us to do in His Word (in context) is for our overall benefit. God will still be God whether we obey Him or not.

God doesn’t need our money, but He instructs us to tithe and give an offering so that He can bless our lives (Mal. 3:10). It doesn’t impact God in any kind of way if we forgive others, but He instructs us to forgive to be free from anger and hurt feelings (Eph. 4:32). Forgiveness has also been scientifically proven to maintain a strong immune system. All the sins God instructs us not to do doesn’t benefit God. It benefits us. Through Christ, we’ve been forgiven of all (past, present, and future) sin, but sin has natural consequences that negatively impact our lives. For instance, if we consistently eat too much (gluttony), we may suffer the consequence of obesity, diabetes, and/or high cholesterol.

Understand that God’s instructions are not trying to take something from us. He’s the Creator of mankind and He knows what is beneficial for His creation. Trust that His instructions are best for us.
