Love Does Not Rejoice at Injustice

by Joyce Meyer – posted November 09, 2012

It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. —1 Corinthians 13:6Love is grieved at injustice. It always wants what is fair and right. It craves justice, not only for itself, but especially for others. I don’t like to see people mistreated. I have been hurt a lot in my life, and I well remember how it feels.

We should care about others and their pain, pray for them, and do what we can to relieve their suffering. Love is not unfeeling; it cannot look at unjust situations and just simply not care or do nothing. The worldly mentality of “don’t bother me with it, that is your problem” has no place in the lives of Christians.

Obviously, we cannot physically or financially fix everyone’s problem, but we can care. We can work with the Holy Spirit to make sure we don’t allow our hearts to become hardened by all the violence and injustice all around us.

God is love, and He loves righteousness (knowing you are right with God—acting right, talking right, etc.)—therefore, those who walk in love must also love righteousness. Psalm 97:10 states that if we love the Lord, we must hate evil. Those who love righteousness are often persecuted for it—Jesus was, and we are not above our Master (see Matthew 10:24). Don’t hate evil people, just their evil ways. God hates sin, but He loves sinners.

Keep walking in love, hating injustice and unrighteousness, and the favor of God will come upon your life in an astounding way.
