Justice: The Order Love Requires

Justice can be defined as the exercise of power and authority to order society according to God’s standards. 

Loving actions may take place in an evil society, such as a slave society. But, if the order of society is not changed then love itself is thwarted. Justice, then, is the order which love requires. While justice is the order that love requires, love transcends justice.

Love can never do less than justice. It can only do more. A heart that’s moved by love cannot sit idly by while someone suffers a need. Loving your neighbor as yourself is being moved to help to the full extent of your ability. 

JVI has recently launched our end of year fundraising campaign. Your generous support is an act of love bringing justice to some of the world’s most vulnerable and oppressed children, women and men. 

 

Your generosity allows JVI to go deeper in high prevalence areas for human trafficking and other extreme injustice to root out systemic injustice.
