Isaiah 1:17 – defending the cause
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. – Isaiah 1:17
Couldn’t be more clear! I love this verse and hope that I will pass along these directives to my children through words and actions. I fear believers in Christ sometimes judge the oppressed, forget the orphans, and disregard widows. Doing so bleeds right into injustice and does not show the goodness that is found in a Christ-filled life.
In my opinion, this verse speaks the essence of Christianity and the belief in a loving Heavenly Father who will always be the Father to the fatherless.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
