Psalm 140

Whose jobs are they coming for anyway?
   I was under the impression that
jobs (good and bad) came from the Provider.
   You think they’re the pestilential ones?

What if “the wicked” were closer to home?
   What if you found them on your speed-dial,
on your Sunday School roster or voting
   record? Or what if you were wicked,
unwittingly but complicit still in
   God’s least favorite injustices –
the dreadful things that rile his soul with rage
   and send his feet to the tribunal?

The only rescue is the Righteous One
   who is enthroned to out-grace us all.
Though He is also enthroned for justice,
   which overturns, providing glory.

Psalm 140
