Shawn Hart talks about our longing for justice on today’s Take Five, drawing on his personal experiences in Rwanda as he continues this week’s series looking at how we reflect the image of God.
When tragedy strikes home, and when deep evil and wrong hit us personally, there’s rightly a deep angst and a heartfelt cry for that wrong to be made right, for justice to be done.
In order to be upset about the injustice that is being committed, you have to assume that there is value to the person who is the victim of injustice.
At its most foundational level, our longing for justice reflects the God of justice, whose image we are created in.
