It's All About Love
Because He first loved us.
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Colossians 3:12-13 MSG
The Lord calls us to love one another because love binds everything together in perfect harmony.
“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute,” (Psalm 82:3). “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow's cause,” (Isaiah 1:17).
8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. I Peter 4:8
PRAYER: Gracious God, how wonderful it is to know that you care for the weak and powerless. And not just wonderful, but also instructive. Your priorities teach us to seek justice for orphans, the oppressed, and others who are powerless.
Give me eyes to see those who need justice. Give me wisdom to know when I should act and how. Give me compassion for the weak and helpless. May my heart be shaped by your own heart, dear Lord, my actions by your actions.
All praise be to you, God of justice and mercy. Amen.
