SOCIAL JUSTICE

October 17, 2016

Monday

 

Isaiah 1:17 

 

Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

 

 

LESSON

 

The passage clearly reveals a concern over the social injustices of the time. Such social injustices, however, could only be corrected by a change of heart upon the part of individuals.

 

It is easy to be tired of church if church does not connect with integrity, compassion, or fundamental life change. But you will not grow weary if you will work for the good of all.

 

Men are wanted who are prepared to march in the van of the army of national, civic, and personal reformers. Men with the one thought dominating them that God the Father lives, and loves with an everlasting love every member of the human race. Men who, influenced by this irresistible intuition, seek to purge and purify politics and trade, society and the Church, law and custom, speech and practice. Eliminate all things that oppress and injure, and which in any way retard the triumph of the kingdom of God. The watchword still is, “Cease to do evil.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 31:9
