Speaking the Truth in Love

Awaiting Justice

Current events cause us to consider the idea of justice, and why some people seem to “get away” with hurting other people. This is not a new question, of course. David wrote about such things many times in the scriptures. In Psalm 10, David voices the temptation to feel that God is “afar off” and hidden during times of trouble (v.1}, while the wicked man persecutes the poor (v.2). The evil person lurks and hides in the villages waiting to catch and even kill the helpless (v.8-11), figuring that God will never catch him. The Bible’s answer for this is that God does indeed see, both the plight of the innocent and the deeds of the wi~ked (v. 12-15). God will repay the wicked for their deeds (v.14), and will bring justice to the innocent (v.14-18). David always came to the I . h cone usIon th t G d . elp, and he would r I . . a o is his e Yon His timing f . . as the scripture aff . or Justice.
