Proverbs 29: 7 The righteous care about justice for the poor,
but the wicked have no such concern.
8 Mockers stir up a city, but the wise turn away anger.
Frustration. When I see pictures like the one above I try to understand the frustration and impatience, and the outright wanton desire to destroy that is fueled by too many people living in close proximity experiencing the same kind of pain generation after generation. Lashing out at symbols of authority people seemingly end up destroying what little they may have and alienating the ones among them that might be instrumental in leading the way to a better way of living.
The most unfortunate thing in all of the civil unrest that is occurring today is that there is always a deceiver working both sides against the truth, there are always those individuals who want to use the situation to their own advantage, to loot and destroy, to profit unlawfully, to injure and to kill.
I believe that for all of the invective being hurled about that the problem is not racism, not inverted racism, not even the so called supremacy of one race of people over another. It is about power. The power to control, the power to direct the course of other people’s lives for the benefit of someone else.
Whether you see yourself as a victim, or as one who has by sheer chance avoided becoming a victim it is clear that justice has become a commodity rather than a leading, and holy characteristic of human kind.
My prayer is that the God of peace will come upon all of the players in our cities in such a powerful way that true Biblical justice would once again shine so brightly that it might dispel the darkness from the lives of the people who are so tormented, deceived, and unhappy now.
