No obscurity for Christly justice

How can we correct injustice? Is there anything we can do when justice seems elusive?

Sometimes when unjust things happen, no human way to correct the situation is immediately evident. Justice appears obscured. Yet conscience tells us that something must be done. But what? A show of human will won't help, any more than fearful or apathetic inaction.

Isn't this a time to ask God, prayerfully, that a higher understanding of Christ, Truth, emerge in our own individual thought? If we do this sincerely, we can be sure that Christ— unfolding the true womanhood and manhood of everyone— will bring more of the Father's spiritual justice to all concerned. Christ also expresses the all-power of God, good, acting in human consciousness to destroy injustice as well as other evils. Christ brings clearly to our thought spiritual evidence of the divine and human rights of all individuals; and this discernment leads to the elimination of injustice through divine power.

Instead of accepting frustration and self-pity, we can quietly let Christ appear more vividly than ever in our experience. The way to begin is by seeking purification of our own goals and deeds. Perhaps we need to remember that through prayer and purification, we can overcome injustice to ourselves and also help others meet their challenges. This desire to help others can become the moving force in our lives. We can trust God with this purpose, remembering that Christ, the very spirit of God, has never, in the long run, remained obscure to human thought. Here the Bible is a tremendous encouragement.
