Oh, isn't verse 2:10 so much necessary for understanding the very foundation of our belief? I think every person should memorize it, "For whoever keeps the whole law but fails (stumbles) in one point has become accountable for (is guilty of breaking) all of it." I cannot imagine never sinning in my entire life except one time. I sin every day! I sin many times a day! Even in doing good, I sin. I am certain that God can find something wrong with my attitude or my thoughts or some little thing unbeknownst to me that is sin in everything I do, whether good or bad. This verse reminds me that all sins are equal. It does not matter if a sin is adultery or murder as they are equal. What makes them equal? The punishment. All sin deserves the same punishment; that of eternal separation from God. I cannot imagine running a red light and then being found guilty of every other law in my city! I'd be guilty of letting my lawn grow too tall, making too much noise and disturbing my neighbors, stealing, and on and on. I'd have a whole bunch of punishments slapped on me! But when it comes to God's law, there is only one punishment that is the same for all, so it does not matter what kind of sin or how horrible the sin, it just takes one sin to receive God's punishment; it is that punishment of eternal separation from God that makes all sin equal. There is no "sinning just a little bit." There are no larger or smaller sins. There is no selective obedience. There is no stumbling about trying to get it right. There is no picking and choosing. There is no "three strikes and you're out!" It all seems hopeless like I should not even try. That is the very reason, however, I need Jesus. Jesus puts me on level ground.
