Your Standard of Measure

Years ago there was a law on drunk driving that was passed in Louisiana that was one of the toughest laws in the nation. A prison sentence became mandatory for anyone convicted of driving while intoxicated. Getting the law passed was a major victory for various groups against drunk driving, and they could not have gotten it passed if it wasn’t for the help of one particular state legislator who sponsored the bill. It wasn’t long after the new law took effect that the first person to be arrested for driving under the influence was brought before the judge and found guilty and was sentenced to a prison term. Who was he? The same legislator who sponsored the bill!

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven…For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”—Luke 6:37-38.
