From The Head Teacher’s Desk
Our Virtue/ Value/ FOCUS for this week is:
JESUS’ JUSTICE IN THE RESURRECTION
Thought for the week:
“Jesus died to atone for the sins of all in the world-Gentile and Jew, servant and master, women and men, boys and girls, believers and those who choose not to believe. In his resurrection, He triumphed over death and opened the gates to Everlasting Life for all…Salvation is still an open invitation to all !” Serenity
Reflections on: JUSTICE
Legal justice is largely based on 'Mosaic Law' detailed in the Bible in the books of : Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Here, generally the stance is one of justice as being from: 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth' philosophy. This thinking stands in stark contrast to what we have established as Jesus' Justice in the New Testament (Sermon on the Mount) which teaches us to: 'Love those who hate us and pray for those who persecute and seek to harm us'. The staff and pupils were asked today to consider the impact of both Man’s Justice and Jesus’ Justice on our world today and to asses which would be more effective at establishing true peace and harmony. Let us all seek to practise Jesus’ Justice by generously sharing love and forgiveness.
