The Love of Justice

today's reading.
Psalm 72:1-20    Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to the royal son...
Psalms 72

think about it.
King Solomon is seeking God's blessing. What does he ask for? What are his responsibilities? What are you doing to bless others (72:17)?

the blog.
Solomon's very first words caught my attention today. "Give your love of justice to the king, O God, and righteousness to the king's son" (Psalm 72:1, NLT). The verses that follow then seem to support this request with examples and illustrations of what Solomon is thinking this looks like for him and his kingdom. Well I'm certainly not a king (or queen) and I'm guessing you're not either, but this same request of loving God's justice and righteousness should be on our hearts as well.

So what does loving God's justice and righteousness mean? What might it look like put into practice in your life? And how do we make this a desire of our heart? Tami W.
