Top 5 Injustices in our world today
Racism
Abuse
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,’ and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” –Romans 13: 8-10.
Hate, strife, physical and domestic violence and verbal abuse are the opposite of love. To physically or verbally abuse someone only serves one purpose: to treat someone, whom a person deems lesser than themself, to be even more insignificant than how they see themselves. It’s all about power; it’s all about justifying “feeling good,” justifying that they did something to deserve it. What we can do to stop this injustice is that we can raise awareness around the world to influence people to stop abuse.
Poverty
“Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.” –Mother Teresa. Poverty is a injustice in our world today, this also doesn't include homeless people these include single mothers working 20 hour shifts to put food on the table, people who sleep in their cars and families who live on food stamps. We could help solve this issue by donating food, clothing , money and volunteering at a food drive or serving meal to people who need food.
Gender- Unequality
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. Some Women around the world don't hold any right, and don't have any power. Some examples of these type of injustice towards women is Saudi Arabian women are denied to have driver's license. In China, female babies are being killed because of their “one-child” policy and their preference for males. What can we do to get rid of this injustice is that we can raise awareness around the world to help women around the world to be treated as an equal.
Starvation
“It takes great courage to open one’s heart and mind to the tremendous injustice and suffering in our world.”
― Vincent A. Gallagher, The True Cost of Low Prices
1 of 15 children die in developing countries dies from hunger. People around the world are suffering for food, water, sustenance, nutrition, medicine and the many day to day needs that can easily be taken for granted. What we can do about this is to donate money and raise awareness to help people in developing countries
“Achievement has no color.” –Abraham Lincoln. Race is an issue. Our culture tries to pretend that its not, but our minds can’t help but compare the people with the stereotypes. It’s easy to identify yourself based on your race, but it’s even easier to pre-judge others. Our race has nothing to do with potential, with success or with what a person is capable of. What can we do to fix this injustice is to raise awareness and give people knowledge that we shouldn't judge people based on their race.
Sermon
Everyone around the world has a gift from God, this could be anything such as being smart, athletic, social out going and many more. We should understand that everyone is different and we all have a purpose to this earth. Ways that we could help people around the world understand their gifts is by being nice to each other, getting to know them instead of judging them and giving them a good influence.
