JUSTICE
Imagine a rich man walking down the street and a poor blind beggar sitting at one corner of the street holding his hands out for alms but instead of the rich man giving to that poor beggar, he looked at his right and left and seeing no one in sight, dipped his hands into the beggarís bowl and picked some coins. Such is the case in the world today. The rich are exploiting the poor and getting richer on daily basis while the poor are becoming poorer. Over-ambitiousness, selfish interest and greed have taken their roots in our society leading to injustice and chaos everywhere. In all these, where do we stand as Christians? What does God require of us?
In Micah 6:8 (NKJV), it is written that God does not require more of us than to do justice, love kindness; in other words show kindness and to walk humbly with him. This is Godís expectation of us. How do we do justice, show kindness and walk humbly before God? Christ is the perfect example of one who possesses the above characteristics. Being a God in his real nature, he accepted to come and save mankind, born in a lowly place like most of us, experienced the trials and temptations common to we mortals yet went about doing good, gave sight to the blind, healing to the sick, hope to the hopeless and deliverance to the captive. Never did anything without the consent of the Father, never looked down on the poor and humbly gave up his will for the Fatherís at the cross. What a perfect example! We are told in the gospels to follow in his footsteps, though we may not be able to give up our lives for someone but we can put a smile on someoneís face with our wealth by the kind of attitude we display.
The savior said in (Luke 12:15); A manís life does not consists in the abundance of the things he owns. In other words, life is more than living to gather wealth; it is not the amount of wealth someone has that determines their worth but rather, the impact created with the wealth. We donít have to behave like the rich man who had so much, fed his dog with delicious meals but couldnít show a little mercy to the poor man ďLazarusĒ who wanted to eat at the foot of his table. At the long run, the rich man was the one begging for mercy in hell while Lazarus was at Abrahamís bosom. Beware of injustice, pride, selfishness and covetousness
