Social justice has been a major topic that has headlined news articles for over a year now. There are very real issues of injustice in our country and in our world that need to be addressed, but sadly the whole topic has become extremely political and extremely divisive. What is the solution? Is there any hope for those who are hurting and in need? How can they get justice?
I am excited to begin a new series of messages today entitled "Justice for All" I want to address the topic biblically, helping us to have a clear understanding of the problems and discuss real solutions. My goal is to cut through a lot of the noise and cause us to move towards positive change and action.
Today begins with looking at God's commands for us to be concerned with and active in addressing justice issues. We will also begin the discussion of what real justice looks like. Over the next several weeks we will dig deeper into the individual injustices we see and discuss biblical attitudes and solutions for each, along with identifying some of the very flawed solutions being proposed. I trust this will be a helpful and enlightening series that cause us all to "do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God" (Micah 6:8)
