Defend the oppressed

A 'ramble' on justice

“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”–  Isaiah 1: 17

Over the past couple of years I have been thinking about justice. What does it mean? How should our society do justice? How should I do justice?

A basic definition indicates that justice is “the principle of moral rightness; decency. The quality of being just; fairness.” 

When I read this I’m not too sure that it helps much . . .
