Justice…

In recent years I have changed, have been challenged, have questioned, and hopefully have grown spiritually.
What I have found to be true is that God is a god of love. He is a god of mercy and compassion. He is a god of justice…ahh, this is one of the words I think we get stuck on. What does justice mean? Is justice judgment? Is it damning people and “giving them what they deserve” or is it as Cornell West defines it, “Justice is what love looks like in public.”? Or is it something else?
The way we define justice has a direct effect on the way we live our lives as Christians.
So, how do you define justice? Let me know, I am interested to see what you think.
