April Virtue: Justice

Justice is being fair to everyone. It is just for people to receive a consequence or punishment when they do something wrong, and also just for people to be recognized when they are doing something right. Being just means standing up for your rights and the rights of others. When you practice being just, you don’t judge other people. Justice means you share fairly with others, avoid gossip, look for the truth by investigating yourself, and do not follow what others think or believer.

what would being just look like if…

  • You are with a group and they start to gossip?
  • Everyone is teasing a child who looks different?
  • Someone makes a remark to you about people of a different race?
  • An older child starts to get rough with you?
  • Something in your room is missing and you think your brother took it?
  • You are cutting the cake at your birthday party?
