The Mission to the World Day 8 of 20
In a world where so many are oppressed, hungry, imprisoned, exiled, orphaned and widowed, what can be done? The Psalmist speaks of God as powerfully working for those in deepest need: upholding the cause of the oppressed, feeding the hungry, setting prisoners free, lifting up those bowed down, watching over the foreigner, and sustaining the orphan and the widow. No wonder the Psalmist leads us in praise of God! But if we are to reflect the God in whose image we are made, then we must also reflect God’s concern for the weak and the voiceless.
