The Meditation

Some people seem to think that peace on earth

will come through passing and enforcing world

law. This will indeed give a necessary peace, as

a framework in which we live. However, we

must remember that human law is only the

half-way house; it can never bring the deep

abiding inward peace with God wants us all

to have.

It is one thing for a man to obey the law because

he is afraid; it is quite another thing for a man

to obey the law because He loves the law!

We have the chance to get people to love what is right.

We will find it is much easier to get people to

love each other when they both love the law.

The love of man-made law brings outward peace!

The love of God’s laws brings inward peace—the

peace that passes all understanding and all
