Funny thing, God’s timing.
I sat at my computer on Friday finishing off the last business of the day, cooling down before hitting the road and shooting the breeze when across the open plain office a guy stated, “Why do good things always happen to bad people and bad things to good?” (and yes I know that’s a question but it’s a statement of sorts too).
He’s a Buddhist; and while I tried to explain God’s black and white answer it just didn’t appeal to his esoteric hue shaded worldview.
Tonight I listened to God as He responded to the nation of Israel’s very same question,
Bottom line (and this comes in the very next verse), He’s coming; and be ready because when He arrives the justice you cry out for will be metered out in exact measure. When God stays His hand it is not justice denied but rather it’s mercy’s garden; a chance for grace to blossom and for love to take root.
