#19 Do Justice

#19 Do Justice

        If I see a group of people as my enemy, or as the ones who are messing up my world, I will likely do very little to create justice for them when obvious injustice happens to them.  My unspoken thought might be that they deserve it or I might even feel a twinge of satisfaction at their misfortune.  But Jesus messes it all up, as he tends to do, and refuses to accept the invitation to become mutual enemies.  His actions declare, “This is how it is in MY kingdom – opponents are made friends and enemies are loved.”  So I make a conscious decision that LGBT people will NEVER be my enemy.  I will not see them through that lens because they’re too valuable.  And because they’re not my enemy, my heart is moved to create justice for the most oppressed and vulnerable in their community.
