injustice.

Do you have a couple of things that hit a nerve?

The kind of thing that makes you react without even thinking?

One that hits a nerve with me is injustice.

I cannot STAND to see someone treated unjustly, especially when often, the injustice springs from something else I can’t stand: self-righteousness.

Listen. The world is full of injustice. But you can’t hold on to the anger, cynicism, or bitterness. It’s only going to hurt you from the inside out.

The bigger picture is this: if you believe God sees everything and one day will make it right, you can live with the injustice. I’m not talking about apathy. Do whatever you can do to correct injustice wherever and whenever possible. Don’t ever be afraid to stand up for what is right.

But if you’ve done what you can and it doesn’t change, remember that God is ultimately responsible for justice.

God promises one day he will make everything new. Those things that are wrong will be made right.

Hold on and rest in that thought.
