Obey the Laws

“Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.”  St. Augustine

Okay, this one seems like the “gimme” in the group – “obey the laws.”  Short of driving the speed limit and pulling those tags off of mattresses (okay, the list may be longer), I and most others generally “obey the laws.)  But then it occurs to me that there are various lawbreakers we owe a debt of gratitude to.  On occasion in history it was time to not “obey the laws” as then written – Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. come to mind.  Which of course leads us logically to the last of the rules.
