The Purpose of Justice

The purpose of justice is the appearance of unity among men.
(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 66)

For years I thought that unity should come first. I am finally starting to see that justice is required before there can be hope for unity. Better later than never! What a gift for the Baha’i New Year! Happy Naw Ruz!

The essence of all that We have revealed for thee is Justice, is for man to free himself from idle fancy and imitation, discern with the eye of oneness His glorious handiwork, and look into all things with a searching eye. Thus have We instructed thee, manifested unto thee Words of Wisdom, that thou mayest be thankful unto the Lord, thy God, and glory therein amidst all peoples.
(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas)
