Justice, One Step at a Time

Justice is not just a good idea, it is a necessety. Justice is making other people’s problems our problems. Justice is getting outside of yourself, opening your eyes to the things around you, and responding in obedience to what God has already spoken, to care for the poor, the orphan, the widow and the stranger, or in other words, the most vulnerable of our society.

Justice is a part of how to know God. Justice is a necessary component to our theological study of God, it is a theological necessity. We cannot only do justice from a far, doing justice happens best when in proximity of injustice. This happens outside your front door, across town where immigrants and refugees have been resettled, or across the world on an international service trip.

Doing justice is an adventure, its a part of our humanity (Micah 6:8) and it is the call of God, on all of us.
