People flourish where there is a feeling of safety and justice. We grow the culture of justice by living in this way for others rather than fiercely focusing on what we perceive as just for ourselves. A key part of justice is having the capacity to listen well. This means to suspend our judgment until we have fully engaged with the person and understood what is really being said. This means listening for the spoken and the unspoken and having the capacity to view things from the other person’s perspective.
In living justly, God encourages us to be merciful and to act with compassion and humility. It is through compassion that we engage and build engagement.
