God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels indignation every day. If a man does not repent, God will whet his sword; he has bent and readied his bow…the wicked man conceives evil…he makes a pit, digging it out, and falls into the hole he has made. His mischief returns upon his own head, and on his own skull his violence descends. ~Psalm 7:11-16 (excerpt)
May we always remember that God is a righteous judge! He is indignant about the evil done to His precious ones and He alone is in control of the just outcome for evildoers. As His emissaries here on earth, we do our best to deal justly through civil and criminal responses, but we must always keep in mind the very limited understanding we have of His greater purposes.
