For the word of the LORD is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,
and all their host by the breath of his mouth.
He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle;
he put the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the LORD;
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
For he spoke, and it came to be;
he commanded, and it stood firm.
Ps 33:4–9 (NRSV)

God created the world with love toward it and commitment to it. He created it to be good, righteous, and just.

Anything that isn’t good is not from God. You can blame him, if you want to. He can take it. But it isn’t his fault.

Jesus came to set the world right. To make it what God meant for it to be in the first place. He is coming again to complete the process, but who knows when that will be. Our job is to uphold righteousness and justice in the meanwhile, the in-between. For some reason, he has entrusted this responsibility to us.

Until kingdom come.
