JUSTICE FOR ALL: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM GENESIS ON JUSTICE
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: God’s justice restores what is broken.
Have you ever been hurt so badly by someone that you desperately wanted revenge? When we’re treated cruelly or unfairly, it’s natural to want justice. But what does “justice” really mean? Is it only about handing out consequences and punishment to the people who have wronged us? Or could it be about something more? How do we balance forgiveness and grace with truth and consequences? There’s someone in the Old Testament of the Bible whose life has a lot to teach us about justice. In this 4-week series, the story of Joseph will help us see that justice is love in action and that, when we’re wronged by others, we can hold on to hope, trust that integrity can withstand injustice, and learn to practice justice that restores what’s broken.
Relationships are a key component of change. We have to relate to educate. We also have to relate to cooperate with our peers. Vernon Wright, creator of the Zero Apology Zone, shares some drivers of change including THREE QUESTIONS you don’t want to miss.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
