Never Ask For Justice

            Legend has it a maiden approached Napoleon begging that he spare the life of her father, who had been a deserter and had been condemned for execution.             
             Napoleon frowned and answered, “He has already twice deserted and do you ask for his life?”
            “Sir,” she replied, “I do not ask for justice but, for mercy.”
            Napoleon granted her plea.
            Who are we to ask God for justice?
