“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
Abused children, human trafficking, slavery, abject poverty, tortured lives, one nation worrying about an epidemic of obesity while others suffer famine – this world is churning with injustice but most of us live shielded from its full blown ugliness. Occasionally we’ll be shocked by a news report that exposes some vile darkness but what shocks us, is daily life for millions around the globe. Life is not fair!
The more I witness man’s inhumanity to man the more I long for the coming kingdom – a kingdom of justice.
If you’ve been burned, treated unfairly, unjustly judged, take heart! We can be sure that in the end all scales will be brought into balance. It’s not our place to seek vengeance because we too would judge unjustly. But we can be sure the righteous judge of all the earth will do justly. Walk in forgiveness and leave the final outcome to His righteous judgment.
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
