“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” – Isaiah 1:17 (NIV)
Earlier in this passage, God stated that God was not moved with Israel’s dead religious activities. Their pious observances had become a way to avoid true responsibility. In a time when there was no social security or welfare, orphans and widows were relegated to poverty and great need. One of the results of a relationship with God will be a desire to help the weak and helpless. This statement is an imperative, meaning, this is what faith does. Wouldn’t the world be a delightful place?
