Re:Verse passage – Daniel 7:1-28 (day three)

And the books were opened.”

There’s been a witness to every injustice you’ve ever suffered. Every act that has wounded your soul has been recorded. Despite the amount of power a person amasses, impunity is ultimately out of reach. Blood cries out from the ground; deeds get weighed in the balance; secrets become rooftop news; schemes lose their cover of darkness. Whether a king lords it over a subject, or whether a person in the inner circle merely looks with smug satisfaction on someone of lower station, God knows. The way others treat you matters to God, and you are therefore responsible for the way you treat others. This will all become starkly clear on that day when the books are opened.
