Back in our student days, we learned how bills become laws, how ideas and written pieces of paper make their way through the legislative process to help us live our lives together in community. Laws, properly written and lived by, lead to harmony and ensure justice for all.
God’s laws, found in the Old Testament and reinforced by the teachings of Jesus, are written on the hearts of God’s faithful and lead us to recognize the central place of God in our lives. God is God, the giver of all life and the instiller of laws that have their foundation in the greatest of all God’s commandments: We must love God and love one another. It is love that is written on our hearts and love that leads us to harmony and justice for all.
