Chapter 20 of Joshua regarding the cities of refuge is a reminder to all of us that justice is very important to God. God's forgiveness does not relieve sin's consequences. However, God never wants a man to be judged and punished wrongly.
May we NEVER make a snap judgement about a person. There should be proper consideration of the facts and witnesses before we judge anyone in any way.
Thank you for this reminder, God. I know I am often to quick to make up my own mind!
