Years ago, a church friend sent this to me. Not sure who the author is/was, but thought it too good not to share. Enjoy!
“God is just. It’s His character, who He is, and it’s something He wants us to pursue.
Justice seeks to make wrong things right.
It is us working throughout our lives to fix injustices in the world around us.
Every time we see something that’s wrong, our first response should be to pray about it.
Our second response should be to ask ourselves, “What can I do about it?”
However, it doesn’t even occur to most of us. It’s like we look at things and think that it’s someone else’s problem, and we wish “they” would fix it! We wish “they” would do this and that.
Have you ever stopped to ask, “Who is they?”
I think “they” is us, you and me!
You may not be able to fix everything, but you can do something.
Don’t look at injustice and do nothing. You must do something because God did not create you for inactivity and passivity.
He created you for enthusiasm, zeal and passion.
He put gifts in you to be used for His glory and to help other people.
Live a life of justice today.
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, don’t allow me to sit around wishing “they” would do something about the injustice in the world when I can do something.
Fill me with boldness, and show me how to right the wrongs in the world around me.”
Help me have a love for people. Remind me the “they” is you and me!
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; love and faithfulness go before You.” Psalm 89:14 NIV
Fill me, Lord, with your righteousness and justice. Help me be faithful in loving Your people.
That is how I can more fully…
*Again, no idea who the author was. I assume it was read as a devotion and copied and pasted to me. I did try to find out who the originator was but to no avail. No disrespect meant by not giving credit where credit is do. I say well done author and glad we could pass it on so; prayerfully others will become more of the “they.”
