Jesus comforted the afflicted, and afflicted the comfortable.
Compassion for the Afflicted or for Evildoers?
When, through your silence or denial, the afflicted pay the price to maintain your comfort zones – in your personal life, your church, your community or your nation – watch out!
Justice, in its most basic terms, is making sure that evildoers – rather than their victims – bear the cost of their evil.
Injustice is when we impose those costs on the victims, often because we are unwilling to be discomforted by admitting to – or dealing with – the evil among us.
Jesus, because He is love, is also about justice.
And so, even today, He comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.
