I expect almost everyone has asked God for justice. Yet anyone who asks for justice from God doesn’t well understand the concept. What we have need of is redemption.

Excellent Wally. Unfortunately I don’t think enough people know the difference between the two words. I am absolutely certain I don’t want justice from God.
But, then again, I don’t think I am good enough one my own

Well..I hope that if somebody doesn’t get it, they will ask! We holler give me justice, give me justice…eh, we really don’t want that even a little bit, do we James?

We may think we do at times but, no we really don’t. We really want mercy.

A pastor in my past used to say, “We all deserve judgement but we all want mercy.” We should want the same for others. Even those who are painting me with a broad “Trumpian” brush and blaming me and my ‘ilk’ for all their problems. I think I’ll also pray that God will have mercy on all of us contentious Americans and make this election be over! ;0)

I like that quote
I really liked what you said about dealing with others
We are very quick to tell God that another person deserves justice. Why would we want that for another?

Because we’re mean and vicious…I’m joking but I’m not…we’re predators at heart, Wally. Only Jesus can put a dent in that beastly nature. And boy, is it on full display lately!

Yes a joke, but also very serious indeed. Which really raised a good point, Pam. We get pretty upset at they way people act in reaction to this entire election. Actually a couple of good points. First, Christians have been guilty of some venom during this process…not much light there from some. Second, why would we really expect the heathen to act like anything besides heathens? As you said, only Jesus can put a dent in it, and them sometimes only barely.

Amen, how precious is His mercy

In my more foolish days, I would say, “Lord, let me kill them so you can raise them from the dead.” I guess I was wanting Him to give me the power for justice.

That, despite the joke, is a very profound thing you just said Patrick.
We are quick to demand that others be brought to justice. How wrong of us. We should pray that they accept mercy, because then they would no longer be in need of that justice.
