The Western Australian Police Commissioner wants to send offending drivers letters. 

In a letter to the editor (from our newspaper): “The only effective way to drive home the safe driving message (in other words no letters) is to have (more) visible patrol vans”. 
I read (in this letter) “The only effective way” and my mind went busy. I thought of effective then I thought of reflective. So I think it should be:
“The only reflective way to drive home the safe driving message is to send letters from the Police commissioner”. 
Why letters? Letters coming from a person in authority make a person think. When I say think, THEY REFLECT. To reflect we need a mirror to reflect off. But an authority can only be reflective if that authority has reflective qualities and those qualities have to be good morals. Good morals reflect and make a person think. Bad authority does not reflect. I am speaking about reflection of ones thoughts. 
Gods Spirit makes the best reflection. God is like a mirror / a looking glass. When we see God we see ourselves. 
So if our esteemed WA Police Commissioner is of good morals and wants to write letters to offending drivers then let him. But is the Police Commissioner good enough in heart and mind to make erring drivers think and change their ways? I do not know.
So an authority has the authority but does it have the power? Does the authority have the power to reflect? We need to mirror others. God made humans in His reflection. We are made in the image of God our maker. Authorities might have power to punish but can they reflect? Punish and reflection are two different things. Reflection can change ones ways. Reflection considers all the options; we think like at a cross roads; we consider our journey and what path we are on. We can be a better person after reflection. In reflection we see ourselves and we see our good and our bad; we can get convicted in our thoughts.
How do we mirror others? A mirror to work 100% has to be clean 100%. You can not mirror yourself properly off a dirty mirror. The cleaner we are the better we can mirror off other people. 

Dirty authorities make dirty reflection. Clean authorities make clean reflection. Authorities need to be clean to have a good thinking and reflective society. Punishing the sinners is not always the only way for authorities to help society; authorities need to make people think (reflect) on their bad actions and change their ways. The sinner has to change from inside. Outside forces can not always change people from the inside. A person has to make their own decisions. We can help by mirroring the sinner and that helps the sinner to see where they have gone wrong; otherwise the person does not understand.
The writer to the editor finishes up his letter in saying that much more police presence (in police vans) on the streets would make erring drivers THINK.

It can obviously only but help to have a greater police presence.   
To be effective is to be REFLECTIVE. Only by changing the people from the inside will society at large be bettered. You can change peoples behaviour by outside influences but that is all HYPOCRISY unless one is changed from the inside. Flesh trying to force other flesh to change behaviour is not permanent. Mirroring people can make people themselves change themselves. We reflect and this gives empowerment to the erring person to change. A person changes themself. 
So to be EFFECTIVE is to be REFLECTIVE. 
For those people who choose to make Jesus Christ their LORD and saviour, they can ask Jesus Christ in to their hearts and confess all their sins to God; God does promise a HELPER for them. God from heaven sends to his ELECT the Helper The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will help the saved to know all the truth. The truth sets one FREE. The Holy Spirit is the GENIUS Spirit; (Genie as in spirit). The Holy Spirit is all pure and powerful and can change a person from the inside. To change or what we can better call to “TRANSFORM” by Gods way ONE HAS TO “WANT” GOD. WANT FROM THE HEART. Know one is a sinner and truly repent. We are ALL sinners, no one is exempt, we confess we sin, we confess we sin. We are like naughty children. We have a child to Father relationship with God. No one is perfect, no one is ever perfect. God saves through the church. The church is not God, God is above. When the church lets you down don’t worry God above will never let you down. The church is full of sinners just as you (are now) will be if you come into the church.
The fool says : “I have done nothing wrong”.

The wise say : “I am a sinner”.
The wise look at God and see themselves and understand it is their own self they see and not God. The wise know they are reflecting off God. The wise know that God acts as a mirror. 

The wise see God, reflect off God, mirror off God and know what sins they see are their own sins and not Gods sins. When the wise see themselves they want to wash away the dirt (the sins). The wise confess to God and get cleaned in God.
The fool looks at God and see sins (dirt). The fool thinks what they are seeing are the sins of God but in reality the fool is seeing his/her own sins. The fool does not understand that they are mirroring God, seeing themselves. The fool thinks God is the sinner and they are ok. The fool stays dirty (sinful) because they do not see themselves as dirty. The fool does not confess to God and does not wash in God.
To see God is to see yourself. 

To know God is to know yourself.
God reflects. 

If we are clean we also reflect. 
Yours Sincerely; Lester John Murray.
