see the goodness

Sunday September 28th,   Ezekiel 18:25 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear, you Israelites: Is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? 26 If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin, they will die for it; because of the sin they have committed they will die. 27 But if a wicked person turns away from the wickedness they have committed and does what is just and right, they will save their life.28 Because they consider all the offenses they have committed and turn away from them, that person will surely live; they will not die. 29 Yet the Israelites say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Are my ways unjust, people of Israel? Is it not your ways that are unjust?  There is a tendency to want to justify our ways of doing things as the work of the Lord.  Often times it is only to put a Lord stamp on what it is that we want.  War, Money, Power, Me on top with all others on the bottom.  I think not and it is not justified in scripture.  God looked at all that was created and called it good.  It is our calling also, to look on all creation, and all creatures and see them as good and carrying within them the spark of God.  When you look out onto your world this day, see there the goodness of God in each and every person and thing you see.
