Justice

God has a plan for each of us.  Although our spiritual gifts and what He’s called each of us to do are different, there are three actions that God desires we all do: “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8b).  Justice is defined as “being righteous.”  And the Bible mentions righteousness and justice simultaneously over thirty times.  Living justly is using our position in life to assist those who are less fortunate.  It’s doing what is right, even in the face of fear, loss, or opposition.  The psalmist wrote, “The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed” (Psalm 103:6).  If He’s living in you, that verse will be your desire.  You will want to use your gifts and position, whatever they are, to do what is right for others. 

Read:  Proverbs 8:20-21, 29:7; Isaiah 56:1; Romans 3:25-26

Pray:  Show me how I can use my position and spiritual gifts for justice.  How can I be an advocate or voice for someone who may not have the influence or voice to speak?

    there’s a little song that goes like this, “He has shown thee, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of him….but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God”…Love Micah 6:8!!
