We want to bring about justice. We want to say perhaps that a woman who clearly showed horrible judgment in lying to the police about the death of her young daughter but was not convicted by an earthly court, should somehow pay. We are so certain of her guilt because of what we have been shown by the media and certain personalities. It seems wrong. And yet, God will say, “wait.” The reality is, God will judge every single person. Every single one of us will face God’s judgment of our lives. Like every single one of us might want to do to some other person about something or other, God will speak the word “guilty” to every single one of us. Our lives are weedy. In moments of brutal honesty, we know that. We are not what we could be. We do not do the things that lead to life. We choose the path of slavery and death, again and again. And yet, despite knowing that we all will hear the verdict “guilty,” God waits.
