We can think about justice as giving wrongdoers the punishment they deserve; “an eye for an eye,
a tooth for a tooth”. However justice also means giving people what is right and fair to have: life,
health, freedom, love, respect and dignity. The Bible teaches us to deal with everyone fairly and
to never show partiality to one group above another. Throughout the Bible justice is important to
God; “For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face”. Justice is not about
a community which encourages everyone to only think about themselves; justice is about a
community that knows that everyone’s well-being is bound up with that of everyone else.
- Be fair.
