For morality, a right heart is better than a right law. (Jackson Wu, theologian)
Many who are dissatisfied with the current state of society—decrying high crime rates, lack of respect and courtesy—plead for the government “to do something about it.” Hundreds of years of history have demonstrated clearly, however, that morality cannot be legislated. It’s not a new law we need but a new heart, an inner acceptance of truth and transformation of life.
Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. …
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. (Ezekiel 18:31; 36:26).
