A husband that betrays his faithful and devoted wife, and vice versa.
Parents that were abandoned by their own children.
Years and years of working without achieving anything.
Minors and elders that suffer abuse.
Helpless people that fall victim to cruel men.
Are any of these things fair?
Who, when faced with these situations or maybe even worse, has never wanted to take justice into their own hands?
However, justice cannot be done through anger, hatred, or physical violence but through the cleanness of our hands!
The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands… Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight. Psalm 18.20-24
Those who suffer because of injustice should not worry about how big of an injustice it is, but whether there is unrighteousness within them.
This is, if their hands are clean!
The righteous remain righteous, even in the face of injustice.
He is able to remain clean in a completely filthy world.
His life is an open book.
Everything that occupies their head and heart could be shown on a movie screen for the world to see. They have nothing to hide (Psalm 26.2).
For this reason, in the face of many injustices, the righteous can present their hands, which represent their thoughts, feelings and actions, and claim that justice be done for them!
The hands that offer sacrifices of righteousness are pure.
This is the only possible way to do justice with your own hands!
