2 Chr. 19:6-7 He said to the judges, “Consider what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the LORD who is with you when you render judgment. Now then let the fear of the LORD be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the LORD our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality or the taking of a bribe.”
On this day when a new Supreme Court justice is going to be nominated in the United States, we consider how important judges are, and how they will answer, someday, for how they judged, for the true and final standard of justice is written on the conscience, embedded in the soul, etched upon creation itself, the inevitable fingerprint of the Creator. A justice that would honor life and the original intention of the Constitution would be a blessing from on high. One that would, like so many over the past decades, set himself or herself above the law, and sit as a king/priest/judge over the land, would be a further evidence of God’s judgment upon a wicked people, for wicked judges are what a wicked people deserve. So we pray for grace and mercy undeserved this day.
