God and Michigan State District Judge Hugh Clarke Jr. play no favorites. Clarke has a rule in his courtroom; no cell phones. When the judge’s cell phone unexpectedly rang during a court session Clarke assessed himself a $50 fine, reached into his wallet, and paid his bailiff on the spot. “I am not above the law,” Judge Clarke told The Wall Street Journal. “We operate by laws and rules, and people have to follow them.”
We are all subject to God’s laws as well. There is a penalty for breaking the spiritual laws. Thank goodness Jesus is able and willing to pay our penalty for us. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
