More and more it’s becoming evident that Light and Truth always prevail.
In the wake of the rampant injustice, oppression, prejudice, bigotry, and ignorance that continue to pollute our societies, I’m reminded of the many Bible messages that encourage us not to be afraid, “for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known” (Matthew 10:26).
With the widespread access to social media and video evidence, many evil practices that were previously hidden are now being exposed. Things that used to be craftily covered are being uncovered, and media houses, bloggers, and the average Joe/Jane have no choice but to cover what is uncovered. What happens in ___________, stays in ___________ is no longer very applicable.
A just society is in the business of doing good, seeking justice, helping the oppressed, defending the fatherless, and fighting for the rights of widows. As carriers of light, we should remain incorruptible, full of integrity, even in the midst of lawlessness. Our character and name should stand for something, with loving kindness at the helm.
Love does not rejoice about injustice, but rejoices whenever the truth wins out (1 Corinthians 13:6).
