What does justice mean today?

It can mean a lot of things.  As I meditated this week on the Civil Rights Movement and the Scripture from Amos 5:24 (that states, “But let justice roll down like waters,and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream”), I listed these steps to show justice:

Care for the poor.

Show justice in the courtroom.

Have fair elections.

Educate the children.

Eradicate disease.

Interrupt cycles of poverty.

Steward the planet.

Base elections off ideas, and not 30 second commercials.

Stop unnecessary wars.

Quit oppressing the poor through the lottery.

Don’t sell your soul to lobbyist and special interest groups.

Eliminate weapons of mass destruction.

Rescue young girls from human trafficking of sex slaves.

Exterminate world hunger.

Do not tolerate genocide.
