Love and Justice
For me, I don’t know about you, it’s so hard to understand love and judgment both being a part of God….
I am fairly certain that most people see God either as loving or judging… but the truth is that He is both love and justice. Before God created us the world was all ‘right’ but when sin came in, so did ‘wrong’. We see that if there are things are right, then there are also things that are wrong too. If there is ‘right’ then there is there is ‘wrong’…
God is not all one attribute but his make up, not that I pretend to know or understand all of it, is complex and so He is both love and justice. Actually I think that love and justice are inseparable. However from a human, mortal standpoint…. trying to see the cohesion of love and justice is just too much for my brain to control and make sense of.
Humans either usually err on the side of love, compassion, empathy, understanding, forgiveness and mercy or they err of the side of judgment, condemnation, opinions, correction, drawings lines in the sand and being very black and white about things. From what I have seen… God is the only one who can successfully do love and justice perfectly.
I really don’t know how it works, and what is the difference between an observation and a judgment? How thin is that line right there and how on earth do we stay on the right side of it?
From human eyes we cannot comprehend that, but if we can relax and give up our role as judge then we can be freed to do the things He has called us to with even more anointing because judgement of others stunts us.
We also need to realise that our interpretations may or may not be correct, but how can we know in a lot of cases unless we know the bigger picture?
I know that I don’t know the bigger picture so I’m asking the Lord to forgive me for thinking I do.
