God's Boundless Compassion

"God's compassion fro the victims of injustice extends to all people , all around the world, without distinction or favor. When it comes to loving the people of the world, God suffers under none of our limitations. He doesn't feel so limited for his caring or hierarchies of people, races, communities or nations to love. Rather, as the psalmist writes, 'The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed' (Psalm 103:6). Indeed God seeks to establish justice 'to save all the afflicted of the land' (Psalm 76:9). The God of the Bible is a God that loves and bleeds justice (cf. Psalm 37:28)."
