Our Friend: The Law
Not everyone who at times shows disrespect for law is behind bars—are we? And yet we may think we are reasonably law-abiding, and perhaps, in the usual sense, we are. But not until we are impelled to look above laws—the laws of the land—to consider the nature of law itself, the law of God, do we see the importance of actually loving law and the possibility of doing so.
Law is our friend. We see this, in a relative way, in the social structure. Without laws—laws that are just, fair, impartial, laws that are administered equitably and effectively—we would be unable to develop an orderly society. While it is unfortunate that laws are not always so framed and administered, this is the goal of all good government.
But consider the importance of the term "law" when elevated to its spiritual meaning. In reality there is one basic fundamental law—divine law. This law is all-wise, all-encompassing, all-good, supreme. The one and only creator of the one and only universe acts through this invariable, immutable, irresistible law. Everything that actually occurs takes place and fulfills its God-derived purpose through the operation of this law. The order, harmony, purposefulness, of creation is established and preserved by this one all-embracing law in which and through which the divine purpose —God's will—is perfectly expressed.
