Does Justice Really Matter?

Ecclesiastes 3:16-22; 4:1-3; 7:15-18

We see injustice all the time. It is a part of the human experience. It is so prevalent in our world that we might ask, “Why, O LORD, do you stand far away” (Psalm 10:1)? Is it right to conclude that God doesn’t care about justice? Does justice really matter at all in this world? The writer of Ecclesiastes recognizes the presence of injustice and forces us to ask tough questions like these. As we study through these passages, we’ll find the answers to difficult questions concerning justice.
