An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Justice Rejects PC

(Proverbs 2:8 KJV)  He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

We hear a lot of talk about “justice” (Judgement KJV) (4941) in our modern culture.  Usually the word is preceded by an adjective like “social”.  The addition of that adjective removes all reference to the justice the Bible speaks of.  Notice the purpose given to this justice.  It is to “preserve” (8104) the “way” (1870) of the “godly ones” (2623).

Justice is not some ethereal concept.  Justice effects people’s lives.  The purpose of justice is not to achieve equality but to carve out an atmosphere that allows righteousness to flourish.  Justice is not value neutral.  It is also not defined by the current reigning philosophy.  It is eternal.

So?  Be reminded, and warned.  What your university professor calls justice probably is not something you should be seeking.  What God calls justice your professor would reject.  It is hard to accept but righteousness is different that politically correct.  It also pays different dividends.
