S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth.
Throughout the Bible, the Lord tells us of His great love for the whole wide world. Then there are writers, both of the Old and New Testaments, who tell us how much God loves us. John the Beloved says, “For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only son!” (Jn. 3:16a). In this Psalm, the writer says that God rules the entire people of the world with equity or FAIRNESS. He also says that God guides the entire peoples of the world. It’s because He’s fair to everyone.
You may be asking why is there so much injustice in the world today? That would be because selfish people ARE NOT FAIR. The injustice happens at the hands of selfish men and women. To blame God for injustice is to purposely fail to hold people accountable for their wicked ways. Remember that God gave humankind the ability to choose to love or hate. When hate is the motivation, there ceases to be “equity” among humankind. War is the result of hate in some fashion on the part of one or more individuals. Love, on the other hand, is the higher calling and must be accompanied by JUSTICE or FAIRNESS or EQUITY. How do you make it FAIR for everyone? We must allow the Lord to have His way in our lives. When we do, “All’s FAIR In Love And Love.” No war! Please, NO WAR!
Please let there be love and Peace and Justice. And, let it begin in me. Amen
