Perceiving justice.

Character defines how you look at justice. People with evil intent have a different outlook than those who pursue God. Justice, in this context, refers to the legal rights of people. However, some individuals don’t think that way. Instead, justice must benefit them, or it’s not justice.

Strong character applies God’s justice to life’s circumstances, whether it benefits them or not. Christ’s followers understand that life centers around the Lord, not them. And sometimes, God uses the consequences we receive for our actions to grow and mature us further.

In my younger days, I thought winning more important than anything else. Following the Lord and applying His principles to my life teaches me resolution means more than winning. Justice doesn’t always mean it benefits me. Glorifying God means more.

The Lord defines justice and dolls it out. Following Him will help us understand and follow God’s commands. Centering our lives around the Creator will give us clear direction, keeping us on the straight and narrow to living life to its fullest.

Lord, thank You for giving us laws to live by and the faith to follow them. Please help us glorify You in all we do. Develop our character as we live by Your justice and the legal rights of people. IJNIP. Amen
