“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Lovingkindness and truth go before You.” Psalms 89:14
I am all for justice because my God is a God of justice. The foundation of His throne is righteousness & justice. Therefore, we should be people who want justice for those who have been treated unjustly.
It is clear racism still exists and we need to acknowledge it instead of staying silent & indifferent towards it. The change needed in the world on racism & justice starts with Jesus. He was the 1st & only righteous Man murdered without any just cause because He is the only One without sin. He gave His life so that we might live for Him and be His hands & feet on earth. So if we want justice for the unjust killings of black lives then we must first see the injustice done to Jesus on the cross. We must be angry & heartbroken over His death & injustice before any other life.
I believe if we start here then black lives & all other lives of any color will start to matter. If we seek God first & His will then we will see a change in culture for the greater good. If our nation will return to God be a nation who seeks the Lord, I know hearts will change & black lives will matter to the people of God. Every life is valuable to God & if we are to be like Him then all lives will be valuable to us too.
We can share all the unjust acts done to black lives along with information to educate us on understanding racism which I believe is needed too. But a true change of heart against racism will not happen until we are people who seek the Lord first with all of our heart, mind, soul, & strength. If you want to see racism start to come to an end & justice served, start seeking the Lord first, read the Bible daily, walk in the ways of the Lord, share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. I believe if we do this then racism will not be tolerated in those who are true followers of Jesus Christ.
