“Come unto me all ye who labor and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take yoke upon you and learn from me for I am gentle and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
God calls us to be advocates for the downtrodden and abused. He calls us to pray for them, to carry them in our hearts and tell of their plight to others.
God calls us to act on be half of the oppressed:
“Open your mouth for the voiceless;
for the rights of all who are destitute,
Open our mouth, judge righteously.
Defend the rights of the poor and needy”
God calls us to labor in the field:
To feed the hungry
To give drink to the thirsty
To welcome strangers
into our homes
To clothe the naked
To heal the sick
To visit those in prison.
If your pour yourself out for the
And satisfy the desire of the
Then shall your light rise in the darkness…
