Private investigators are called on when a client needs something and, no matter if it’s court papers to be served, surveillance video for a divorce, a background check or whatever, it’s fair to say your client is looking for some kind of justice.
Bad guys, deadbeat parents, con men, thieves, abusive husbands all think they’re smarter, stronger, faster or are more sneaky than their victims. Heck, maybe they are, until their victim calls a pro. We are that pro.
So let’s talk about what justice is.
Justice is when everyone gets what they’re due. (I would say, that includes God.)
So, we collect the evidence a person needs to present to get what they’re due after they’ve been wronged. Our job is not to exact justice. That’s for the law (and frequently an actual Judge) to decide. We simply collect the impartial evidence of wrong-doing.
The fact that the bad guy didn’t think he’d get caught is a bit of arrogance. (IMHO)
On the other side of justice is mercy.
Mercy is when you don’t get the bad thing you do deserve.
Forgiveness isn’t a pass on all judgment.
You can forgive a person for what he did, but you may still need to be compensated in some way.
Is forgiveness really necessary? I say yes. And if you pray The Lord’s Prayer, you’re asking to be forgiven by God they same way you forgive others.
Forgiveness is a non-negotiable.
As I’ve gotten older, this is how I understand things. Do you agree?
And, as always…
Do the right thing, even if it’s the hard thing.
