The Word of the Lord
This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’
I think the world just might need a bit of mercy these days. And we’d all do well to show a little compassion towards one another. I don’t know if it’s just the current political climate in our country and in the world. Maybe we are all just too self-absorbed to care about others. Or it could be a sign of the end times. I’m not sure.
But whatever it is, we have to do better. We have to administer true justice. Not vigilante justice. Or justice without the facts. And certainly not justice at our own hands. But true justice.
And we need to show compassion towards one another. None of us is better than the other. All of us need compassion. And we need it from one another. Because what’s the alternative?
