The basic difference between justice and benevolence.
Be- nevolence is a reaction to someone’s subjective hurt.
Justice aims to prevent objective unfairness.
Benevolence is a fancy word that means something simple: good intentions toward living beings, including oneself. This goodwill is present in warmth, friendliness, compassion, ordinary decency, fair play, kindness, altruism, generosity, and love. Benevolence is a shining character and is more conspicuous in the charitable actions it produces. Kindness is what one man naturally expects from another and what we are reciprocally bound to impart. Doing something good for a partner and giving something good to a partner are quite distinctive attitudes and experiences of love. The Greek word agápē stands for a special love characterized by goodwill, benevolence, and charity.
Justice is a legal structure or system designed to judge, in a general sense, who should be accorded a benefit or burden when the law applies to a person’s factual circumstances. Justice is the ethical, philosophical idea that people are to be treated impartially, fairly, properly, and reasonably by the law and by arbiters of the law. Laws are to ensure that no harm befalls another, and where harm is alleged, remedial action is taken – both the accuser and the accused receive a morally right consequence merited by their actions. Relational Justice (RJ) is defined as the justice produced through cooperative behavior, agreement, negotiation, or dialogue among actors in a post-conflict situation.
Biblical references to the word “justice” mean “to make whole.”
Justice is, first and foremost, a relational term — people living in communion with God, one another, and the natural creation.
Justice. To treat others equitably and distribute benefits and burdens fairly. Non-maleficence (do no harm) is the Obligation not to inflict harm intentionally; In medical ethics, the physician’s guiding maxim is “First, do no harm.”
Beneficence (do good) Provides benefits to persons and contributes to their welfare. Benevolent. Adjective. be·nev·o·lent bə-ˈnev(-ə)-lənt: having the desire to do good: kindly, charitable.
God is a just judge, always giving each person what they deserve. This means personal preferences or partiality do not sway God. “A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:4).
