This month we are looking at the virtue of justice. Our virtue card reads:
Justice is being fair in all that we do. We continually look for the truth, not bowing to others' judgments or perceptions. We do not backbite. We clear up problems face to face. We make agreements that benefit everyone equally. When we commit a wrong, we are honest in correcting it and making amends. If someone is hurting us, it is just to stop them. It is never just for strong people to hurt weaker people. With justice, we protect everyone's rights. Sometimes when we stand for justice, we stand alone.
The Practice of Justice:
I think for myself
I do not engage in prejudice or backbiting
I make fair agreements
I make restitution for my mistakes
I honor people's rights including my own
I have the courage to stand up for the truth
