Many people have different perceptions of justice, which has led me to seek out what the Bible has to say on the subject.
Lately, I’ve realized that my priorities don’t always match God’s. Let’s pray that we would prioritize the things God cares about.
The Kingdom is imbued with justice and overflows with mercy. And God has called us to live the same way.
We will never be able to perfectly care for others, do justice, love mercy, or walk humbly, but we can become more and more like him each and every day.
Walking humbly with God isn’t pressure-filled. It is embracing who he has called and empowered us to be.
Our view of justice has become one of punishment and payment instead of life-change and restoration of relationship.
With the Lord, justice, mercy, and humility aren’t opposing ideas, they all work together in harmony.
Nehemiah led the people in truth and justice.
Justice looks like Jesus.
Today we are putting ourselves in the story to see what it reveals about ourselves, God, and the world as a whole.
I will often spend time wrestling with contradictions and inconsistencies even if I know these things will never come to a resolution. What about you?
