A local radio host was recently discussing the topic of justice. In his opinion, it is up to each person to improve their lives on their own. While we might like to think that we can make great strides on our own, we often rely on generosity and justice. Both of these things originate in God!
God is the ultimate judge and He is just. He is generous and loving as He teaches us about justice, grace, and mercy. As we learn from God, we also need to put these lessons into practice. It is up to us to show love, to be generous, and to lend a hand. It is also up to all of us to stand for justice and to act in ways that support justice, not only according to the letter of the law but also in the spirit of God's love, forgiveness, and redemption in our lives!
Lend a hand, be generous, and always stand for justice!
Thank You for being just, but also for being loving and generous. Help me to learn from You and to always put into practice what You have taught me. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
