Treating the poor right

This is what the Lord says: Be fair-minded and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed; rescue them from their oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, and widows. Stop murdering the innocent! ~ Jeremiah 22:3 (NLT)

So live your life as children of light. Light produces fruit that consists of every sort of goodness, justice, and truth. ~ Ephesians 5:8-9 (CEB)

If we are truly connected to the Lord we will be passionate about living out goodness, justice, and truth.
Lord, thank you for being good, just, and true. Forgive me for not embracing those values with the same passion you bring to the world through our Savior Jesus. Help me to become more Christ-like in my concern for the disenfranchised and dislocated people in the world. You love them as much as you love me. I am going to love them, too. Amen.
