A Faith Reflection on Justice
As Christians, we learn about Justice first from our Heavenly Father. He teaches us to treat all people as children of the Kingdom. The leper, the orphan and the widow need our help and our compassion.
Justice is not only about the big issues that face our society, but it also needs to be present in our everyday decisions. What is the right thing to do? The first court of Justice is our conscience. It governs our responses. Our faith requires us to act and speak in ways that uphold what is pure, right and true. This means choosing the most loving and merciful response in any situation.
This month, practice thinking “pure, right and true” to respond with Justice.
