I feel strongly that God wants us to take up the causes of the downtrodden of our society. I also feel like God wants us to fight for justice for those who can't (or don't know how to) fight for themselves. But I also feel frustrated because sometimes I find it hard to know WHICH cause to take up - since I simply can't take up them all. I also find it frustrating to know exactly what true Godly justice entails. For example, I have a friend who has been accused of something she insists she did not do. It is a mess. She has also been through more trauma in the past year or so than any one person should go through. She is also not a believer yet. I realize there are two sides to every story and the accusers in this case insist they are right and have proof and that my friend is not telling the truth. In all truth and honesty I don't know who's telling the truth. I FEEL like my friend is telling the truth and I FEEL like I should support her. But I don't know how. Other than saying "I believe you" and being her friend. Is there more that I should be doing? I don't know. I just feel frustrated with the complete lack of truth and justice in our fallen world. And what about grace? Even if she is NOT telling the truth the issue is a minor one in my opinion and was handled totally wrong. I feel like the accusers completely overreacted. Doesn't grace have any part of justice in our world? Sigh.
That was a ramble that didn't make much sense, I know. But I needed to vent.
