To finish off this series on injustice, I want to focus on the role of the oppressor. Especially in turning from the oppressor to someone who fights for the cause.

Psalm 73 reminds us how easy it is to become entranced and envious of other people’s lives. When we see others succeeding even when their ways are not always right and just. It can lead us to become bitter to the life that we have. We see the life we have as not enough, and others seem to be enjoying their way of life better. … Continue reading Psalm 73 (The desires of our heart)
