Justice is Worth It

Check out this powerful little video from World Relief, featuring spoken word poet Micah Bournes (click here if you can't see the embed below):

Is Justice Worth It? feat. Micah Bournes from World Relief on Vimeo.

Amen. We pursue justice in our world not out of obligation or religious duty. We pursue justice because people who bear the image of God are not yet experiencing shalom. The victims of injustice are not strangers or statistics. They are our family and God's beloved, and we should be proactive to defend our family when injustice occurs.

But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
(Amos 5:24 ESV)

  1. as you watch this video, think about the thoughts God has towards His own. was it worth it to send His Son? is it worth it to keep loving us in spite the holes we keep creating? He says it is...and i am grateful!
