Do Justice

This is what the LORD says: Be fair-minded and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed; rescue them from their oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, and widows. Stop murdering the innocent!

~ Jeremiah 22:3 [NLT]

God directly calls us to do justice! Justice in this passage looks like delivering those who have been oppressed, not mistreating others, and not shedding innocent blood. God is not neutral on issues of social justice. God has given us firm ground to stand on when it comes to morality. We can go to His Word as our solid ground to show us the way when we feel unsure about how to respond to difficult situations in our world. Let God’s Spirit guide you to be a godly advocate in our dark world.
