At times we need to know that the Lord is a God of justice. When slumbering giants of
injustice emerge in the earth, we need to know that there is a God of power who can cut
them down like the grass and leave them withering like the green herb. When our most
tireless efforts fail to stop the surging sweep of oppression, we need to know that in this
universe is a God whose matchless strength is a fit contrast to the sordid weakness of
man. But there are also times when we need to know that God possesses love and mercy.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.
