Walk in Justice


Micah 6: 8: “God has shown you what is good, O man, O woman. And what is it that the Lord requires of you but to act with justice, to love the ways of kindness, and to walk humbly with your God”

Interim Police Chief Tony Chaplin recently said in a speech, “All human beings have violent tendencies and are capable of violence. .”

When we look at ourselves each one of us have to admit that we are capable of violence, and we take out violence in small forms on others.  A priest friend goes out and beats a wall when he gets angry; I remember being held down at knife point at one time and pushing myself on top of the person pointing the knife at him, and backed off.  We see people flip off drivers. I remember one time four years a go a taxi driver pulling a gun on another taxi driver. These are not extreme examples–each of us are capable of violence. Our evolutionary process has been moving away from violence to love. 

Robert Jennings is scheduled to be executed in Texas on September 14, write emails and letters in protest.  Join Justice For All, and Death Penalty Focus, in working against the death penalty.  Let us remember that each of us is capable of violence, that it is in love that we can walk away from that capability.  Each time we act from our heart we walk in justice, we love the ways of kindness,  and we walk humbly with God.
