Therefore shall ye observe all My Statutes, and all My judgments, and do them: I am the LORD. Leviticus, Chapter 19, verse 37.
God didn’t say to follow the rules that sound good to us or are convenient for us and leave the rest. We are to observe them all! [Although God knows none of us is perfect, He still wants us to try to do as He's asked us.] Added
Here are some related passages:
*Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His Commandments to a thousand generations. And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: He will not be slack to him that hateth Him, He will repay him to his face. Thou shalt therefore keep the Commandments, and the Statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them. Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which He sware unto thy fathers. Deuteronomy, Chapter 7, verses 9-12.
*But if ye will not obey the Voice of the LORD, but rebel against the Commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers. 1 Samuel, Chapter 12, verse 15.
*The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth. Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright. Psalm, Chapter 11, verses 5-7.
