Who Am I (16)? Just and Unjust

The world is a very unfair place. In what ways am I a part of the problem?

My Prayer:

May I face my own selfishness and become more able to care about justice for all, I pray.

Scriptural Touchstone: 

Give justice to the weak and the orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute. Psalm 82:3 (NRSV)

God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does God require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?  Micah 6:8
