Life often feels unfair. Explore where you want to see a difference.
Reflect on the various images.
What injustice would you like to see change?
And in our personal life.
You insult your Maker when you exploit the powerless; when you’re kind to the poor, you honour God.
Proverbs, Chapter 14 Verse 31
Pause and pray to God for that change And ask God to Shine His Light in the Darkness
Read the verses from the Bible about how God sees injustice and poverty.
For God listens to the poor, He doesn’t walk out on the wretched
Psalms chapter 69 verse 33 (The Message version)
For the Lord your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God, who shows no partiality and cannot be bribed. He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing. So you, too, must show love.
Deuteronomy Chapter 10 verses 17-19 (New Living Translation version)
But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbour, be compassionate and loyal in your love
Micah chapter 6 verse 8 (THE MESSAGE VERSION)
Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That’s what I want. That’s all I want.
Amos chapter 5 verse 24 (The Message version)
There is joy for those who deal justly with others and always do what is right.
Psalms chapter 106 verse 3 (New Living Translation)
Treat one another justly. Love your neighbours. Be compassionate with each other. Don’t take advantage of widows, orphans, visitors, and the poor. Don’t plot and scheme against one another.
Zechariah chapter 7 verse 9 (New Living Translation)
Don’t walk on the poor just because they’re poor, and don’t use your position to crush the weak, because god will come to their defence.
