Every person is obligated to contemplate the commands given explicitly to him by G-d and to understand everything that he is obligated and forbidden to do, and how to better his character. Therefore, a Gentile should contemplate the 7 Noahide Commandments, and what one can learn from them to rectify his nature and correct his deeds.
Of primary importance is contemplation on the very fact that G-d gave commands to mankind. This teaches that G-d has purpose in the world – and anticipates the world coming to its proper rectification – through the actions of mankind.
G-d’s commands teach that a person is able to do meaningful good deeds and rectify himself and his environment. Surely a person should not view himself as being naturally evil, nor imagine that it is impossible to change one’s nature to goodness.
Rather, a person should know and believe that since G-d commanded him and anticipates his doing specific good actions, G-d surely has given him the power and capability to accomplish this. To this end, there are lessons which can be learned from each one of the 7 Noahide Laws.
