justice...


Recieved my copy of Simply Christian by N.T. Wright, what a great read, just began reading it and I love it. His focus so far has been on the echo's of God and one of them is justice. Reading N.T. Wright and at the same time Shake Hands with the Devil by Romeo Dallaire, has really been good. Justice, the desire for justice in us all, no matter how we perpetuate injustice, no matter how unjust we are, there is a lingering desire for justice, or a very strong one in some, and this echo is the voice of God N.T. Wright suggest...its been good to be in this study, its been good to think about how my actions may perpetuate injustice on small scale, local, national and global. It has been a great challenge thus far...lots to think through, lots to process...

"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is God of justice." Isaiah 30:18a
