The Fourth of July

Here in a world ruled by God, there is such a thing as justice in human affairs. The justice that should humble us with proper self-examination when we fail is the same justice that should embolden us with proper self-assertion when we are attacked. If the tilt of our thinking is always toward the self-doubt that enfeebles, we are not motivated by a sense of justice but by its absence. But in this world ruled by God, history will display the triumph of his justice "just as sure as the turning of the earth."
