The Highest Law
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable . . .
—2 Timothy 3:16
那些制定宪法的人都知道他们在为自由人的政府起草基本文件；他们认识到只有每个人都知道和理解法律，才能作为自由和独立的人生活。 他们要知道自己的权利，权益和限制。在法律面前，他们是平等的，很少有不公正的法官；因为法官 也要受同一法律所约束，必须对每个案件进行相应的审判。正如宪法是国家的最高法律，圣经也是上帝的最高法律。因为正是在圣经中，神规定了他的灵性法则；在圣经中，上帝许下了他永不改变的应许；也正是在圣经中，上帝揭示了人类的救赎计划。
The men who framed our Constitution knew they were writing the basic document for a government of free men; they recognized that men could live as free and independent beings only if each one knew and understood the law. They were to know their rights, their privileges, and their limitations. They were to stand as equals before the court of law, and few judges could be unfair; for the judge, too, was bound by the same law and required to try each case accordingly. . . . As the Constitution is the highest law of the land, so the Bible is the highest law of God. For it is in the Bible that God sets forth His spiritual laws. It is in the Bible that God makes His enduring promises. It is in the Bible that God reveals the plan of redemption for the human race.
Prayer for the day
Almighty God, each day our nation and we, the people, face so many crises. May each one of us seek wisdom through Your Word, the Bible.
