Strengthen Your Inner Beauty with…Justice!

    Ladies, this week’s inner beauty virtue is one that most of us Christians don’t consider. It’s a virtue we forget, or we allow it to be pushed aside for our own desires. The virtue is justice. And as Christians, we are called to help bring justice to others. Do you?

    What is justice? Well, it’s not revenge and it’s not getting the result that you want. Rather, justice is giving someone what is due to them, regardless of how you feel about them. So, if justice means rewarding or supporting someone you don’t like or punishing someone you do, then so be it.

    Justice relates to the rights of a person according to natural rights and legal rights—although natural rights always trump legal ones. For example, in the case of abortion, although it’s legal in this country and others, it is not justice according to God’s natural law.


    When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous, but dismay to evildoers. (Proverbs 21:15)


    Consider practicing more justice in the following areas of your life:

    • At school. When you see injustice done to others, whether it’s related to your friends or someone you don’t know, stand up for the person who has been wronged. In some cases, it may mean going against a friend or even your own desires. But justice means doing the right thing or standing up for someone.
    • In life. There will be many opportunities in your life when you will need to stand up for those dealing with injustice. Remember that law is the foundation of justice, but God’s Truth determines real justice. Man is imperfect, but God has it all right.


    Pedro Arrupe, S.J. once stated, “To be just, it is not enough to refrain from injustice. One must go further and refuse to play its game, substituting love for self-interest as the driving force of society.” Often we have to put our own interests aside to show justice for others. Sometimes, justice can mean going against our friends or family, and sometimes it means putting ourselves in a tough situation. Regardless, what’s right is right and we just have to do the right thing.


    Whoever says to the wicked, “You are innocent”
    will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations;
    but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight,
    and a good blessing will come upon them.
    (Proverbs 24:24-25)


    If you’re finding it a struggle to be just, then consider the following tip:

    • Pray for it. Because, ultimately, God is the strength that you will need to be just.


    Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
    remove the evil of your doings
    from before my eyes;
    cease to do evil,
    learn to do good;
    seek justice,
    rescue the oppressed,
    defend the orphan,
    plead for the widow.
    (Isaiah 1:16-17)
