7.9.17 Micah Mandate #3 Do Justice- Pastor Jake Ritzema

“It’s not fair!” cries a four year old when they didn’t get a toy and their sister did. “It’s not fair” cries a thirty year old when they lose their factory job that was sent overseas. All of us have had those times when life doesn’t seem fair.  Then image what it is like when, because of circumstances beyond your control, you find  yourself homeless, or you find yourself bound in a wheelchair, or you find yourself born with a skin color or heritage that automatically places you in minority status in the country you are living in.

How often in those situation are you looking for someone to champion your cause or someone to assist you with all the obstacles you find in your way, or obstacles others intentionally place in your way because of your situation. “It’s not fair!” you cry. All you are seeking is justice but all you receive everywhere you turn is injustice from those in power or who power over you.

Unfortunately things haven’t changed since the days of Micah the prophet thousands of years ago. What can be done? Come Sunday as we discuss this very thought provoking subject of justice as it applies to our own modern situation and to us individually. See you on the 9 th of July.
