Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.

Proverbs 14:31

Discussion Questions

  1. How does God’s definition of justice differ from human definitions or expressions of justice? Where have you experienced the need for God’s justice in your life or the world?
  2. Our sinful tendency is to “insult our Maker” and oppress others. What lies do we believe when we participate in injustice? How do you see perfect justice displayed in God? Consider pausing to confess and ask God for grace together, knowing he is faithful and just to forgive.
  3. What is the Christian’s unique motivation for justice? How have you seen your relationship with God impact your relationship with the marginalized or oppressed?
  4. Christians can bring justice to whatever they do. What are some practical ways you can participate in seeking justice as a community group? As individuals and families?
