Let justice be your sacrifice

Psalm 4
Journal entry dated February 22, 2005

"Let justice be your sacrifice, and trust in the Lord."

"Let justice be your sacrifice;" this is a theme found in Isaiah 1, as well as in the teachings of Jesus, that the establishment of just relationships is the sacrifice desired by God, the elimination of oppression and exploitation.

What does a sacrifice of justice look like? Following on yesterday's reflection, it means the creation of a dignified space, where the children of God hold their heads up high. It means the elimination of relationships of dominance.
