It’s Five Minute Friday and the word for today…
The word just in my mind, can only have one ending…justice.
In the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf and Frodo have a conversation about Gollum.
“It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill Gollum when he had the chance.” Frodo is angry. He wants justice because the ring has come to him to destroy and it’s all Gollum’s fault.
But Gandalf says,” Don’t be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
Many people want to see justice in this world. We can’t stand to see the young harmed, the senseless death from drugs, while drug lords keep selling. Why do the good suffer so much?
It is not ours to deal justice.
That belongs to the Creator alone.
The eyes of the Lord are repeated 479 times in the Bible.
He sees all, he is all-powerful and no event on earth goes unnoticed.
His eyes look to and fro over the earth looking for the righteous. Do not despair, he will deal justice in the right time. Meanwhile we must spread righteousness that shines bright.
