Most human beings want to be rewarded for good deeds, but do not want to suffer for the bad choices. Yet, God’s Justice demands that wrong must be punished if a right is to be compensated. We must acknowledge that God is not just if He only rewards good choices and ignores bad choices. No group of godly men was more concerned for Justice than the Founding Fathers when they wrote the Declaration of Independence.
I remember my father always telling me: son, in life, you will never make people who don't like you because of the color of your skin, like you. But, son, you make sure that you get an education, work as hard as you have to, and be a man of integrity. They might not like you, but they will have to respect you. He would stress, son an uneducated person is a controllable person. It would take many years before I could understand those words.
