We will never understand what it means to have a fair and just society, city, state, country, or workplace until we understand what God says about it. Once we choose God’s justice, which begins with righteousness, then the grace of God works in us to be, live, walk righteously, and conduct ourselves in a fair and just way.
Righteousness, in the most basic sense, is to be in harmony with God. We make a choice, “I want to be like God. I want to have the character and nature of God. I want to be kind, merciful, compassionate, forgiving, patient.” We might not always know the right thing to do in a given situation, but if we are committed to righteousness, to staying in harmony with God, then we will always end up getting to the right place.
No matter what our country does, we can choose to treat others justly.
