This week’s lesson – Mercy and Justice in Psalms and Proverbs

“Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked” (Ps. 82:34, NKJV).

Paul tells us to be imitators of Christ (Eph. 5:12). While Jesus was on earth, He spent a lot of time ministering to those who were considered outcasts in society. If we profess to be followers of God, we will work to meet the needs of others. We must be a refuge for the poor and seek justice for the afflicted. In our ministry to the less fortunate, we should also point them to the Savior and eternal life. When we assist those who are least among us, we are doing it to Christ!

Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss on Sabbath morning.  Hope to see you then.
