We find it easy to be incensed when wrong is done to a friend. We are ready to fight injustice when someone we love has seen wronged.
However, God reminds us that our worship means little if we do not also protect those who are weak, marginalized, oppressed, and forgotten. It’s not just our friends who need our help; it’s also those who have no friends, who needs us. To do right doesn’t just mean being a good person and avoiding evil in our sanctified little enclaves, it all means to care, comfort, and encourage those no one else wants to notice.
