Getting justice

Let Truth uncover and destroy error in God’s own way, and let human justice pattern the divine.  

— Mary Baker Eddy 
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 542

One of the great injustices in history is one that most people have experienced. It is this: suffering for doing something right. The event may have been pretty simple. For example, a friend told me of a neighbor who had acted harshly toward her because he misunderstood a comment she intended to be helpful. For her, his attitude was quite unjust. It had caused her much distress. And there are the larger injustices, like a man imprisoned for years for a crime he didn’t commit. He was doing something right, but because an eyewitness made a mistake in an attempt to identify the actual criminal, this man had been unjustly convicted. Eventually he was proved innocent and was released, but an injustice had been done.
