A greater sin to tolerate injustice

A greater sin to tolerate injustice

If there’s one thing I can say to the Zambian people today is that I hate injustice. And I will say it at length.

Like Christ we should tremble with indignation whenever an injustice is committed against anyone.

It is a sin to commit injustice, but it is a greater sin to tolerate injustice.

It holds true, that is, if one continues to tolerate the injustice being done now, then it gives the offenders the courage to continue with their sins and there shall be no end to it.

Unless one raises their voice for honesty, truth and compassion against injustice, greed and lies the situation will not change on its own. We need to speak the truth even if our voice shakes.

People don’t bother if injustice is being done to someone but it makes a huge difference when the same situation is being faced by them or their loved ones.

If you see an injustice it’s better to voice your opinion be it for yourself or others.

It takes a lot of courage, efforts to stand up for what you believe in and it may involve a lot of risks as well.

What you allow is what you continue. Never ever be bullied into silence, for you will allow yourself to be made into a victim.

One needs to stand up for what one believes in even if it means standing alone. It does take a lot to stand alone.

We should voice our truth before all things get worse. Everything can be tolerated – except injustice.

The people who force us to tolerate injustice are the ones who are part of creating that injustice or a victim of it.
