Do Justice

Cornel West, a profound philosopher and activist, once said, “Justice is what love looks like in public.” It’s a powerful reminder that our acts of love and justice are deeply connected. Our sacrifice during Lent can be a testament to that love – a love that acts, that speaks up, and that makes a difference.

Think about it. What does justice look like in your life? How can you, through sacrifice, embody love in your corner of the world? Maybe it means volunteering your time for causes that matter, speaking out against injustices you see, or making lifestyle changes that benefit the environment and the less fortunate among us.

Lent gives us the precious opportunity to reset, to rethink our priorities, and to recommit ourselves to the mission of love and justice for everyone. It’s a challenge, but it’s also an exciting opportunity. Imagine the transformation we can spark, the joy we can spread, and the justice we can usher in, simply by choosing to love actively and sacrificially.

This Sunday we will focus on the story of Jesus cleansing the temple. Most people think of this story as an example of Jesus’ anger and his love for places of worship, but it is my hope that you’ll start to see this story as a story about justice and love for all people. May this story and all of scripture remind you of the abundant love of God that is present in your life!

Until Everyone Hears,

faith, #HolyMischief
