Most people cannot see because they are constantly affected by wicked thoughts—their spirits are clouded and their hearts blinded. I have carefully observed the vicissitudes of life from all walks of life until today, and I have come to the conviction that those who are unfortunate share one thing in common. That is, they lack a sense of justice. Let me explain why they lack a sense of justice. To begin with, even though it cannot be seen with human eyes, the world of the spirit, without a doubt, exists. In this world of the spirit, there is the law of God. Unlike the laws in the human world, God’s law is strict and fair and judges a human’s every deed without partiality. Ah, how unfortunate it is that humans do not understand this! Even when they hear about it, they cannot believe it. And without realizing it, they sow the seeds of their own unhappiness.
In this way, the vast majority of people use beautiful words to make themselves look good. They try hard so that others see them for more than what they really are. However, as I said earlier, the eyes of God exist. He sees through everything—even through the innermost part of one’s heart. God measures how good or evil a person is as if using a very accurate scale. God then decides the fate of each human being. We are powerless before Him, aren’t we?
“A sense of justice”
December 23, 1953
The word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword. It cuts all the way through, to where soul and spirit meet, to where joints and marrow come together. It judges the desires and thoughts of the heart. There is nothing that can be hid from God; everything in all creation is exposed and lies open before his eyes. And it is to him that we must all give an account of ourselves.
Hebrews 4:12–13 GNT
