Putting justice into practice

Justice means making sure everyone is treated fairly and equally. Christians believe that God wants justice in the world. So Christians, for example, may try and put justice into practice by:

  • Supporting charities like Christian Aid
  • Volunteering to help overseas
  • Buying Fairtrade products
  • Praying about injustice in the world
  • Spreading Jesus’ message about justice.

Which do you think would be the most effective? Why?
