Have you ever taken a step back to think about all of the injustice in the world? The harming of the innocent, or the weak? The selfishness of our society? Basically, evil at the expense of others. The bible tells us that evil people may have a difficult time understanding justice, but believers in our Lord should have a different mindset. It says in Proverbs 28:5:
"Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it fully."
I think it comes down to the principle of doing unto others what we would have them do unto us. Or treating others as we’d like to be treated. I believe that this verse is bringing light to the idea that evil people think about what they can get for themselves, and do not put themselves in the place of their victim. You see, Jesus teaches us to do that. To think of other before ourselves; to do unto others as we’d want them to do unto us. With this principle, believers in the Lord should understand justice. So, I encourage you, when dealing with others, always try to put yourself in their shoes as if you were actually being treated the way you are treating them. And I also encourage you to always pray for those who are being abused, those who are helpless, or those being taken advantage of.
I believe that in as much as possible, we should strive to have the heart of Christ. The bible tells us that our God is a just God. He cares about the orphans and the widows. He uses those who are weak to shame the strong. He calls us to love everyone, even our enemies. He says that it isn’t for us to judge, but to leave that up to him. In understanding God’s character, we understand what is important to him. And what is important to him, should be important to us. It is clear that God hates injustice. I encourage you to be mindful of injustice happening around you and to pray for those who are experiencing injustice in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, country and even our world.
