Everyone deserves dignity. We were esteemed and dignified by Christ, who came for, lived for and died for us. That truth motivates us into action. We are commanded to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly before our God.
Righting wrongs is too limited a definition for what biblical justice points us toward, namely, God’s restoration of all relationships – political, religious, social or economic. We are invited to be participants in making these systems whole and healthy.
