JUSTICE

JEREMIAH 12:1 (CEB)
If I took you to court, Lord,
you would win.
But I still have questions about your justice.


MATTHEW 20:10-12 (CEV)
The workers who had been hired first thought they would be given more than the others. But when they were given the same, they began complaining to the owner of the vineyard. They said, “The ones who were hired last worked for only one hour. But you paid them the same that you did us. And we worked in the hot sun all day long!”

SUMMARY SENTENCE
Even though we have a hard time understanding God's sense of fairness we need to trust him to make things right in his own way and time.

PRAYER
God, I know that justice is important to you. But I get frustrated when I see all the unfairness in the world and how bad people seem to prosper. Help me to trust you and your timing. I know that you understand the bigger picture better than I, so I'm going to move forward knowing that you'll work things out in your way. Amen.
