One time, Guppy found our dog with a cat in his mouth. I wasn't there, but I can just imagine his face: a stupid expression that's really funny, and expectant eyes, knowing that Guppy disapproves and not knowing what to do next. It's perfectly natural for our dog to go after the cat (not our cat), but we his owners command that he not do so. Sometimes it's normal for dogs to dig, but the owner disapproves.

I see it the same way with God. There are things that would be natural for us humans, but God has commanded that we overcome certain natural inclinations.

For me, a natural inclination is laziness. Really, it's quite natural.
