Some thoughts on Justice, social and otherwise

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:8 (ESV)

We hear a lot these days about social justice. In fact for some the very phrase, “social justice warrior,” is synonymous with radical groups trying to push their agenda on others. Where is the justice in that?

Justice is the quality of being just, impartial, or fair; treating all as equally worthy of respect and honor. Pushing our ideas on those who disagree with us is not a respectable or honorable act.

Whenever Christians want to promote justice in the world, we must remember that all our actions should be kind, respectful, and honoring of God. Treating everyone as equally worthy of the kindly respect we want for ourselves is one of the ways we can walk humbly, remembering that this is what God requires of us.
