Verse of the Day: 'The Fast I Choose'

By the Web Editors 09-18-2012
Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?  Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin?  Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you, the glory of the LORD shall be your rearguard.  Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry for help, and [God] will say, Here I am.  - Isaiah 58:6-9 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
