Midterm elections are right around the corner. Television ads defaming opponents are screaming. Judges promote their fairness while their competition declare that those judges are in fact biased. In the end the conscientious voter tries to sort through the muck, find the facts, and vote for the least bad option. Others will just vote for the name they see advertised the most or the person aligned with their political party.
We all want good leaders. Righteous leaders. Judges without bias who deliver the perfect verdicts. Basically, people want God to rule and judge. (Then again, people don’t want God to judge because we actually want rulings that favor us and ignore our transgressions.) For those seeking righteousness we can trust that there is One who is enthroned and does judge with uprightness. And for those who have received His salvation through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross – where love and righteousness met – they need not fear the coming judgment.
But the Lord sits enthroned forever;
He has established His throne for justice,
and He judges the world with righteousness;
He judges the peoples with uprightness.
