“Though you cannot see, when you take one step, what will be the next, yet follow truth, justice, and plain dealing, and never fear their leading you out of the labyrinth, in the easiest manner possible. The knot which you thought a Gordian one will untie itself before you.” – Thomas Jefferson
Of all the things that turn men’s hearts from love and minds from truth, justice and plain dealing, there is none greater than the fear of their inability to lead one out of the labyrinth. This fear leads men to seek in vain desperation for an easier, more certain way, but sadly, the greater part of recorded human history gives abundant evidence that none exists.
If the wages of sin is death, the wages of righteousness is abundant, invigorating and fulfilling life.
