Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and loving-kindness and truth go before Your face.

"They" Is You and Me

God is just. It’s His character—who He is—and it’s something He wants us to pursue.

Justice seeks to make wrong things right. We are agents of God that He can work through to fix injustices in the world around us. Every time we see something that’s wrong, our first response should be to pray about it. Our second response should be to ask ourselves, What can I do about it?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the needs we see around us. So we look at things and think that it’s someone else’s problem, and we wish “they” would fix it! We wish “they” would do this and that.

Have you ever stopped to ask, “Who are they?” I think “they” are us—you and me! You may not be able to fix everything, but you can do something. Don’t look at injustice and do nothing. God did not create you for inactivity and passivity, and He wants you to ask Him to show you what you can do. He created you for enthusiasm, zeal and passion. He put gifts in you to be used for His glory and to help other people. So, live a life of justice today.
