Righteousness and Justice from Genesis

As I continue to unravel the concept that God is looking for those who live out righteousness and justice I found a connection to the very first family of God. The first sin was against God, a breakdown in righteousness. And their children saw a breakdown in justice as Cain overcame Abel. From the very first pages, the pleasing of God was found in righteousness and justice and the judgment of God came to those who broke these very foundations. In order to continue to be close to God requires righteousness and justice and the punishment in each case for rebellion against living right and just lives was exile; exile from the garden and exile into the land of wandering (Nod). May righteousness and justice overpower our decisions that we may glorify God and thus enjoy His presence forever.
