Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the Lord your God is giving you.
--Deuteronomy 16:20 New International Version (NIV)
Lord of justice, if I may be influenced this morning by doubt and am inclined to be resentful, will you cause me to have a generous spirit and keep my faith. May I never descend to anything morally low or deceitful, but may I remember that if I lay down my life, I may have the power to take it up again. Amen.
