Today’s Reading – Psalms 81-82
God presides over heaven’s court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings: “How long will you hand down unjust decisions by favoring the wicked? Interlude “Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people. (Psalms 82:1-4 NLT)
God calls us to care about the poor and justice because He presides over heaven’s courts. It is He that we will answer to.
Application to me: I care for others but sometimes wonder what different it makes. Today’s reading reminds me that it is important to God so it should be important to me.
