Seeking Justice

As I have been reading the biblical book of Psalms again recently, it has struck me that the pursuit of God and the pursuit of justice are seen by the Psalmists as an essentially identical journey. God is the God of justice. And what is God’s justice concerned with? Enforcing the law upon all of the peasants? Not at all. God’s justice is concerned with the very people that human justice is most likely to overlook. God’s justice is concerned with the poor, the oppressed, the orphan, and the widow. If we desire to seek this God, then we must also be committed to His justice.

What does that look like for me? I do not know yet.
