Monday May1, Psalm 98: The Lord will judge the world with justice and the nations with fairness. The Lord’s justice and fairness extends to all because the Lord is the creator of all. Justice is not just taking our side against those we disagree with any more than good parenting is about loving one child and rejecting the others.  The Lord’s justice is about is about taking the side of all of creation. Sometimes it is to tell the children, created in the image of God, to stop bickering among themselves and start acting like a loving family.  What if the world one day reached the maturity to live as brothers and sisters, created by the same God, in the image of the same God, loved by the same God?  What if the world one day found the benefit of mutual cooperation far more attractive than mutually assured destruction?  What if?  Perhaps if we moved in that direction, short term gains would appear to be lost, ….. perhaps.  However, the God who created all that is, including time, looks at the long term and asks us to do the same. In doing so, we all benefit as we live closer to our calling by God at creation.
