Old State House

We enjoyed a wonderful trip this past week to Springfield, our state's capital; touring among other things the Old State House which served as the legislative seat of government from 1839-1876 overlapping a number of years with Abraham Lincoln.

It's interesting to ponder the sheer volume of laws passed over the years as men have labored to rule themselves.  It makes me think of a favorite biblical phrase in which Paul articulates God's vision for a day when His law would be written on the fleshy tables of the heart, not in tables of stone (II Cor. 3:3).  Possible today as we yield to His Spirit.
