Justice and Mercy

Someone recently observed that through the course of time and experience as a Navy Seal and a police officer, his father had had to become emotionally detached from individuals and situations in order for justice to be served.

Another friend of mine, a juvenile defense attorney, is super-emotionally involved with each of his clients and their situations in order for mercy to be granted.

As I contemplated these fascinating ways of dealing with others, I thought about God.

For God is Just.

It could be fair to say that God IS Justice.

But God is also Merciful.

God IS Mercy.

And in all of His perfectness, He can execute Justice with every, single, deep, emotion He feels when He offers His unending Mercy.

Oh, He is Wonderful!
Wonderful to me!
