SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHY You sitting???
Get up and M-o-V-e!!!:)
However, become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves with false reasoning. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is. But the one who peers into the perfect law that belongs to freedom and continues in it has become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; and he will be happy in what he does. (James 1:22-25)
You know what you gotta do: move it, Work It!:)
Extolling Jehovah/Yahweh, Moses wrote: “The Rock, perfect is his activity, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness, with whom there is no injustice; righteous and upright is he.” (Deuteronomy 32:3,4) Every expression of Jehovah’s justice is flawless–never too lenient, never too harsh. ~excerpted Drawing Close to Jehovah

A beam of light that contains a broad, smooth distribution of photon wavelengths is called a “continuum spectrum.” This spectrum is familiar as the broad wash of colors in a rainbow. The figure above graphs intensity (the number of photons at each wavelength) vs. wavelength for a hypothetical continuum spectrum. Notice the line is smooth and continuous–hence the name, continuum spectrum. The rainbow-like bar of color shows how the visible portion of such a spectrum appears.
Continuum spectra are produced by the thermal energy of the radiating source.
Say we were to graph…our personal justice intensity aka warmth/compassion/thermal energy…where do we fall along this continuum spectrum of “never too lenient, never too harsh” ???
Do our daily dealings put us in the middle of “never too lenient, never too harsh” ?
Am I one extreme or another: too lenient or too harsh?
Am I completely free from bias or favoritism regardless of social standing, color of skin, gender or country?
Am I swayed by outer appearance or wealth or bribe?
Is my sense of justice restricted to an elite few?
Do I exercise compassion/justice “never too lenient, never too harsh” to every sort of breathing-fragile-life that may cross my path daily?
Are all my ways justice??
Although the Hebrew word for “fatherless boy” is in the masculine gender, this in no way suggests a lack of concern for girls. Jehovah included in the Law an account about a judicial decision that guaranteed an inheritance for the fatherless daughters of Zelophehad. That ruling established a precedent, thus upholding the rights of fatherless girls. Numbers 27:1-8.
Jehovah himself became their fatherly Judge and Protector, the “one executing judgment for the fatherless boy and the widow.” (Deuteronomy 10:18; Psalm 68:5; Psalm 68:5) Jehovah warned the Israelites that if they victimized defenseless women and children, he would unfailingly hear the outcry of such ones. He states: “My anger will indeed blaze.” (Exodus 22:22-24) While anger is not one of Jehovah’s dominant qualities, he is provoked to righteous indignation by deliberate acts of injustice, especially when victims are the lowly and the helpless. (Psalm 103:6)
* Hoping to never lose…certain things (not talking material possessions whatsoever) & certain people & certain justice in my life…hoping You’re dancing or will give it a try…:)
Don’t shoo the morning flies away
nor swat mosquitoes in the evening.
Between the two, they fill the world.
So many, should you fight them all?
And yet, how short a time they live.
While they last, give in and let them bite you.
October, and a cold wind wipes them out.
You don’t remember then they ever were.
Han Yu (768-824)

Dancing to the intensity (of agape/compassion…such is my fragile bug-like existence.)
