27-11-2019 (Wednesday): Justice Upholding
Scripture : “This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place.” Jeremiah 22:3
When society moves toward forgiveness and reconciliation, it does not mean turning a blind eye to places that are unfair and unjust. Justice has to be upheld before forgiveness and reconciliation start. This does not mean liquidation and revenge, but it means finding the truth for injustice cases. Regarding the establishment of Independent Commission of Inquiry, this is not against the police, but for all parties to be investigated.
The social contradictions have deepened and the crisis has intensified. They have repeatedly missed the opportunity and missed the opportunity many times. Both sides make mistakes, but the side with authority has a greater responsibility. The justice must be upheld if we want the society to get healed. Please pray for healing for those who have been bullied and treated violently. Please pray for the related parties to be brave and honest enough to face their responsibilities. Please pray for the people who have been treated unjustly that the truth to be revealed, and the foundation to be established for reconciliation.
