Do What Is Right

Description

Do right by the people God has placed in your life. Don’t just offer up prayers—do something and get involved.

Isaiah 1:17

Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.  Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.

In our society, fatherless children, widows and single mothers surround us.  We, as the church, are called by God to do right by this growing population. We are called not to judge them, look differently on them or say, “what a sad situation,” and give them pity. No! We are called to love them, include them with our families, and to encourage them. Your husband could be the only healthy father that child ever sees.

Open up your eyes and look around--fatherless children are all around you. Single mothers are growing in numbers due to the increase in divorce rates. These people need your help, your love and compassion-- not your pity.  Invite a divorced family to join you for a holiday meal or to watch a movie with your family.  Your family could be the only version of a “normal” family those children will know. Do right by the people God has placed in and around you. Don’t go through life only offering up prayers--do something and get involved. 

Prayer

Father,

I am realizing I have a responsibility to those around me- to do right by them, not only in my prayer life but also in my daily life.  God, give me Your eyes to see people the way You do and give me Your love to love them well.
