Life May Not Be Fair For Now, But The Time Will Come When All Accounts Will Be Settled. Because God Is Just, I Will Not Lose Hope When Evil Seems To Triumph
“Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.”
You have probably noticed that even in a society dominated by lawyers, injustice often prevails. As a matter of fact, it may be more prevalent than ever. Have you ever found yourself angry and frustrated by wrongdoing that goes unpunished?
Justice Horace Gray served on the United States Supreme Court during the late 1800s. Not only was he respected as a fair and objective arbiter of justice, but he was admired as a generous philanthropist in the City of Boston.
During his stint as judge on a lower court, a man stood before him after successfully escaping conviction on a legal technicality. Everyone knew he had committed the crime, but no one could do anything about it. Judge Gray addressed the man before the court: “I know that you are guilty and you know it, and I wish you to remember that one day you will stand before a better and wiser Judge, and that there you will be dealt with according to Justice and not according to law.”
Nobody likes injustice. God wants us to do all that we can to see fairness prevail. But He also wants us to remember that He will have the final say concerning every human life. Life may not be fair for now, but the time will come when all accounts will be settled.
When you see injustice, does it cause you to wonder if God is truly just? Or does it cause you to wince for the people who will someday be called to account by God? Pray for those people today, that they will repent while there is still time.
Ecclesiastes 3:16-17; Proverbs 29:26-27
Because God is just, I will not lose hope when evil seems to triumph.
