Social Justice.

An integral part of the Gospel is loving your neighbor. Although as believers we are to be set apart from the world, Jesus never called us to withdraw from the world! In fact he sent us boldly into the world to be his hands and feet. It is to this cause that we have the next two weeks of scripture readings about Social Justice and our call to follow the example we see in God’s word!

WEEK ONE

Day 1, Exodus 3: God hears the cries of the slaves

Day 2, Leviticus 25: The year of jubilee, a time of economic revolution

Day 3, Ruth 2: A poor woman finds help

Day 4, 1 Kings 21: Elijah speaks to a land-grabbing, murderous king

Day 5, Nehemiah 5: Nehemiah demands justice for the poor

 Day 6, Isaiah 5: Warning to fun-loving materialists

Day 7, Isaiah 58: Worship that God appreciates

WEEK TWO

Day 8, Jeremiah 34: Freedom for slaves

Day 9, Amos 2: Sins against God by his own people

Day 10, Amos 6: Warning to the complacent

Day 11, Micah 6: What the Lord requires

Day 12, Luke 3: John the Baptist tells how to prepare for Jesus

Day 13, Matthew 6: Jesus speaks on material things.

Day 14, James 2: How to treat the rich and the poor

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for
me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,f  you were doing it to me!’
