Most of the time I’m pretty good at resting and trusting and just leaving the hard things to understand to God. I know life is not fair. But I have a strong need to actually SEE justice every now and then.
Yeah, I’m the type who does like to see someone getting pulled over who has been driving very recklessly. I like to see the police actually catch someone red-handed. We all see people day in and day out getting away with criminal behavior… and I am not against MERCY and GRACE… but when the lack of justice and punishment begins to get too out of balance… I get terribly discouraged. And sometimes downright depressed.
Today, Casey Anthony, who allegedly murdered her little daughter, was declared Not Guilty in a case that has dominated the media for months. Who knows what the jurors based their decision on… Supposedly the evidence. But who covers up an accident to look like murder as the defense says? Any rational mind believes she killed her daughter. If she DIDN’T, Who did?? Same as in the O.J. Simpson trial… If not O.J?…. Who? The only counts Anthony was found guilty of were for providing false information to investigators looking into the June 2008 disappearance of her daughter. The child's body was found in the woods six months later and a medical examiner was never able to determine how she died.
I must say, if my child was missing I wouldn’t be providing false information as to where she was. It wouldn’t have taken a month to even REPORT her disappearance! SO, SO SAD.
Justice. I think we all have a need to see it. To see good win out over evil. To see good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. I know I do.
I don’t expect to see justice fully on earth, but I sure would like to see it a little bit more from time to time.
