Responding to Kaydy’s original post, I would like to restate something I wrote in my essay. ‘Society will try to convince us that justice is when you achieve what you want. The problem with this theory is that human beings never really attain all that they want. They always desire more.’ Avenging oneself rarely satisfies, but justice always satisfies. The Bible shows us this time and time again. Society will continue to tell us that we are more important than others. It will attempt to convince us that our happiness should always be obtained. We must resist this deception, however, resting on God’s truth in everything we do.
