Verse of the Day – Isaiah 10:1-2
Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. — Isaiah 10:1-2
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
God wants us to be a generous and concerned people. We are not to be concerned about our “stuff” but the work of God and the needs of others, especially those who are powerless and can’t defend themselves.
O Father of the fatherless, please increase my compassion and commitment to work for those who are forgotten, abused, disenfranchised, and pushed aside. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
