The Elusive Nature of Justice

If you were "king for a day," how would you speed up justice? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 828).

I would define justice in the broadest and yet most specific of terms.  Therefore, I would need to be more than king for a day, I would need to be God for a day.  This is the whole problem with political justice--the inherent and well demonstrated limitation of humankind to perceive and execute justice on a multidimensional scale.  While we concentrate on one aspect of justice, we ignore many others so that, in the end, justice in its widest sense is neither served nor accomplished. When we are thus faced with the insurmountable limitation of human perception, people of faith and goodwill of necessity pray daily for the guidance, wisdom, mercy, and grace of God.  We know we are a broken people, and freely acknowledge that human meekness is forever in order and well-deserved even after our best efforts to establish justice have been expended.
