Justice In The Face of Evil

Justice is a joy to the godly, but it terrifies evildoers.
-Proverb 21:15

If we will take the time to meditate on this proverb we will understand the importance of social justice. Justice for the victims of senseless violence, the poor, the homeless, the oppressed, the financially oppressed, etc. are and should be one centerfold of a godly person’s walk. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a great theologian, says it best when he says “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to  speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Fight for what is right in justice. Seek the face of GOD to gain wisdom of righteousness, and be led by The Holy Spirit, and covered by The Blood of Jesus in your sacred mission in love.
