People willing to trade their freedom for security will receive neither. (Benjamin Franklin, patriot, inventor, author)

In our danger-ridden world, many people are so frightened that security has become the all-important issue of life. For them, the price for guaranteed safety is never too high. Had that been the attitude of America’s patriots in the late 18th century, what do you suppose life would be like for us today? Let’s strive to be safe and to maintain our right to freedom.

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety (Psalm 4:8).
