Justice in the Christian Life

We all desire justice in our lives and our communities. We’re rightly outraged by corruption and evil. Thankfully we believe in a just God. But what does biblical justice look like? Does it look the same as wrongs being righted or people getting what they rightly deserve? How does compassion fit? In this Groundwork series we study scripture passages that guide our understanding of biblical justice, help us recognize justice in the many contexts of our lives, and give instruction for how we can live justly.
