Psalm 119:18

Open my eyes, that I may see
wondrous things from Your law.

Usually what we see in the Law is rules. Do this and you will make God happy. Do this and you will prove how much you love Him. Sometimes it's even as crass as "do this and you will earn heaven."

But there are wondrous things in the Law. Things that show us Jesus and His atonement. Things about the ceremonial law and the sacrifices. Things about who Jesus is and how perfectly He obeyed the demands of the Law. There are also the promises God made in the Torah/Law.

Jesus healed the blind. Open my eyes, that I may see the wondrous things in the law and not simply the condemnation.
