Instead of saying that Justice has been served we should have illuminated in the windows of our conscience the words, "Serving Justice." the Psalmist reminds us that, "Blessed are they who maintain Justice, who constantly do what is right." it is not a one time act. It is not getting revenge on your enemies. Justice as defined by Cornell West, is what love looks like in Public. To be human you must bear witness to Justice everyday.
Psalm 106:3 Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.
How do we maintain justice daily?1. Treat others like you would want to be treated.2. Seek the good of others not just yourself. to look out for self interest only is selfish.3. When it is in your power to do good and help those in need do not withhold it.4. Do not accept a bribe (money) to release the wicked. In other words Justice is not for sale. We can't make deals with corrupt leaders just to get their oil then later turn on them when they no longer serve our interests.5. Be consistent with Justice in every area of life.Dear God,
Help us to Love our neighbors and our enemies. Love conquers all. Lover covers a multitude of sins. Loving others in full view of everybody is Justice. Let Justice roll down like water and Righteousness like a mighty stream. Fill me with living water so that I can maintain justice every day of my life... Amen!
Be and Stay Encouraged...Choose LIFE!
