So what is justice? The ancients defined it as more than what we often think of — simply catching the bad guys and punishing them, as a “Justice Department” is supposed to do. In their book “The Sacrament of Evangelism,” Jerry Root and Stan Guthrie define justice as the habit of being concerned for the welfare of one’s society. Justice involves rendering to others their due — yes, punishment for evildoers, but also praise of well-doers.
