Learning to Live… Through Jesus, Our Neighbours and Each Other

MARKINGS (13)

JUSTICE

“The sort of crimes and even the amount of delinquency that fill the prophets of Israel with dismay do

not go beyond that which we regard as normal, as typical of our society.  To us a single act of injustice—

cheating in business, exploitation of the poor—is slight; to the prophets, a disaster. To us injustice is

injurious to the welfare of the people; to the prophets it is a deathblow to existence.”

[Rabbi Abraham Heschel]
