The pursuit of wealth can sometimes make injustice a blind spot. This became evident to me as I watched my daughter, Rebekah, play the role of a slave girl in the Storling Dance Theater's production about the Underground Railroad.
The injustice of slavery brought a deeper meaning to me as I watched Rebekah perform a role that 100 years ago could have been real for Rebekah's life, due to her partial African American descent.
Many business models in the 1800s were built on the injustice of cheap lifetime labor.
Proverbs 16:8 teaches, "Better is a little with righteousness than great income with injustice."
Human trafficking and illegal immigration abuses are examples of the injustices of our day. If you have to make a choice, pursue justice more than wealth.
