EFFECTIVE SERVICE

Isaiah 58:10 

 

And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:

 

 

LESSON

 

The worship of Israel had not been an expression of piety but part of her rebellion. The rituals and fastings of Mosaic religion are meaningless as long as the people exploit workers and forge chains of injustice. True religion can never be separated from compassion and social justice.

Positively, God’s people needed to alleviate hunger in others , and to pour out their lives for others. Then they would have light, even in gloom, because God would be with them, and God is light.

Memory Verse: James 2:18
