A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, Feb. 8

Isaiah 1:17

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

God is speaking to the people of Israel through Isaiah. He has told them that their sacrifices and offerings, assemblies, festivals and even their prayers have become meaningless to him, because the people of Israel have not done the right thing by others. Even though these words were delivered in a specific time to a specific group of people, there is a lot we can learn from them. Justice is the act of making things fair, or making sure that each gets his or her due. We know life is not always fair, but we can do more to be sure we correct the unfairness when we can. I have not thought about justice in this particular way before, and I need to understand it better.

Father God, help me to "do" justice; to seek and promote it. Help me to understand this concept better, and to see opportunities where I can make even a small difference. Amen

Becky, transforming
