My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

Justice(s)

Here's an interesting Proverb:

28:5 - Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.

I do not have much patience or tolerance to watch carefully over the political wranglings in DC about justice nominations. But that's not to say it's not important. How, though, is it important? It's important not that we have a balance of Republican or Democratic judges, that we walk the line between conservative and liberal, or that the controversy over the process be resolved...it's important because true justice is only ever a by-product of a changed heart. This verse is clear; there is no true, deep, abiding understanding of justice apart from a heart seeking after the Maker. Let's pray for righteous judges who seek the Lord, that there may be true justice in this part of Christ's kingdom.

I like your blog. I brought up this subject with you at the end of MIT last night. Glad to see you looking into it. I agree with on what our country needs. Senators do need to get stuff done and quit filibustering/trying to change rules.
