With our current political enviroment, you may be searching for some guidance on what God says about social justice. I was. I am in no way an expert but I did find these Bible verses on social justice for you to research.
Bible Verses on Social Justice
Proverbs 6:16-19 – There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
James 1:27 – Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

Micah 6:8 – He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Romans 12:15-18 – Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Good News About Injustice: A Witness of Courage in a Hurting World
Accounts of injustice from our own communities and from around the world often leave us feeling outraged and helpless. We wonder what we can possibly do in response. And we wonder where is the God of justice?
