Inspiration – Oct 27

God’s justice is not about seeing that people get what they deserve, good or bad, reward or punishment. God’s justice is about the restoration and alignment of relationships: our relationship with God, one another, our very selves, and creation. Sin distorts relationships, and justice brings them back into focus. God’s justice is all about taking responsibility for who we are and the relationships that are inherently a part of our lives. What happens to my brother or sister, God’s created world, and myself are extremely important for me to consider and factor into my decision-making. We are called to the virtue of humility, to see ourselves as one among many not one over many. Cooperating so that the world operates as God intends is the order of business for the day.
