How long will you judge unjustly and show favor to the wicked? Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy out of the hand of the wicked. (Psalm 82:2-4)
There are some who seem to think it’s a moral offense to complain. Granted, there are people who are hard to please, but just because someone makes a complaint, it doesn’t mean they’re acting wrongfully.
I’m reminded of the people of old who wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. God worked wonders in their lives, but they were ungrateful and rebellious towards Him, often complaining about what they felt they should have had but weren’t getting from God. It was their faithless attitude that essentially kept them from entering the promised land (see Hebrews 3:7-12).
But there are those who voice their concern about things that shouldn’t be happening such as acts of immorality and injustice. It’s not wrong for them to speak out against these things. To the contrary, it’s the right thing to do, because it raises awareness to the presence of evil. They are often looked at as troublemakers, but they are actually heralds of light.
Don’t bottle up your feelings. If something is bothering you, then talk about it. You won’t see improvement unless you express yourself. There is no honor in silencing the voice of a victim; but empathy is encouraged where love is present. Don’t be afraid to take a stand for a just cause.
