And all the people who heard this, including the tax collectors, acknowledged the justice of God . . . (Luke 7:29)

Today, in Jesus’ teaching, all the people within earshot “acknowledge the justice of God” (v. 29). While we oftentimes understand “justice” in terms of punishment, that does not appear to be what Jesus intends here. Instead, the justice of God represents perfect balance and harmony for all people so that everyone finds their home in God’s kingdom. It’s too bad that like the Pharisees and the lawyers, some refuse or reject this, God’s purpose for us (see v. 30), for in God’s kingdom, there is a place for everyone and everyone can find their place.                        – rc
