judging with justice ...

There's an excellent meditation on EAA's Advent calendar by Myra Blyth here.
Reflecting on Psalm 72 she says:
"In contrast to blind justice, biblical justice is open-eyed with hands outstretched to those oppressed and in need ... God's justice ... is not about maintaining order and balance in the interests of the powerful, but of righting wrongs and transforming relationships in the interests of the oppressed."
