Does Not Take Sides


June 04, 2020: SOAP #3836:   Proverbs 28-29; Psalm 60; Romans 16

Scripture:  Proverbs (NIV) 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully.

Observation:  Justice is an expression of holiness.  Anyone lacking in justice would not be considered holy.  God is perfect in holiness; God is perfect in justice.

Those who set themselves to know God, will have a heart for holiness and justice.  True justice, like true holiness does not take sides.  It is true to itself.

Application:   When injustice is expressed among our enemies, it should be identified as injustice.  When injustice is expressed among our friends, it should also be identified as injustice.    

I need to be living each day full of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit helps me recognize injustice around me.  The Holy Spirit gives me wisdom in what I should say and do.  The Holy Spirit gives me boldness to step out of my comfort zone.  And not only is the Holy Spirit working in me, He is also moving in the lives of other people nearby.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, Injustice is a major concern of yours.  Throughout scripture we can read of your involvement on behalf of those oppressed.  Use me to also speak and act in their behalf!  Amen
