Social Justice (Day 4)

Social Justice (Day 4)

Do you ever have those moments you say, “I was meant for this?” Well I had one of those over the last few days. I was doing some reading as a part of the fast and over the last two days two scriptures jumped out at me:

turn your swords into shovels – Isaiah 2:4

the other speaks of a time that God looking for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress. – Isaiah 5:7

I’ve read Isaiah many times before. I’ve counted it a large influence on the terminology in my life (I’ve pulled a name or two from its passages). Not to read everything as a sign, but the the past few weeks have felt like God expects action on certain issues. And I don’t think there has been a better time in history than now for the actions described. We’ve never before been so well equipped to fight for greater things and the rights of others. Ending hunger is a bloodless effort, finding clean alternatives to energy is a bloodless battle, and social justice is a bloodless war. So what good reason can anyone give me for apathy?

As my life progresses, I am fortunate to work more and more towards my passions. This spoke volumes to me that there is more action to take than I once thought.
