Justice

Is God Just in all His dealings with mankind?  Sometimes in our minds it doesn't appear that He is, but we must remember that He is ALL KNOWING and He knows the end from the beginning and He also knows our hearts inside out and our motives, so we don't have to worry about our Heavenly Father be just or not, we know that He is.  But He also wants us to deal justly too, so let's see what we can find out about Justice.

Micah 6:8  " He  has shown thee, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of thee but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God."  So we are to do justly too, aren't we?

Proverbs 31:8, 9  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.  Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

Isaiah 1:17  "Learn to do right!  Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.  Defend the cause of the fatherless,  plead the case of the widow."

Isaiah 30:18  "The Lord is a God of justice.  Blessed are all those who wait for Him."

Psalm 11:7  "For the Lord is righteous, He loves justice.  Upright men will see His face."

We are to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and judge fairly and defend the rights of the poor.  Defend the cause of the fatherless, and plead the case of the widow.  We will be blessed if we wait on Him, for the Lord is Just and righteous and if we follow Him we will see His face.  What a promise!  The Bible is so full of promises and not only that God wants us to be just in all our dealings with our fellowmen and He has shown us what He requires of us but to ' do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.  Walking humbly with God may be the hardest thing for us to do because that is putting others first in our thoughts and in our associations with others.  Justice does play a big part in the Christians life, doesn't it.  Something for us to think about.  Grandma Joan
