Thought For the Day

God's Justice Cannot Sleep Forever

Here is a thought for the day.

God who gave us life, gave us liberty.  Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis--a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God and that they are not to be violated but with his wrath?  Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Thomas Jefferson, from a statement engraved inside the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC.
