His Name is Justice

I walk in the door and we make eye contact. He stares hard and I can tell the synapses are trying to connect; he takes his time. His expression communicates the difficulty required to use even the simplest brain functions.
But the question that has gnawed at me all these years – I’ve tried to deny it, stuff it, rationalize it away – is this one: Does God love Justice? It’s that age-old question of trying to balance a loving God with the injustices that surround our daily lives. So many things – like injustice and suffering – are a mystery.
