Thus says the LORD, “this, is the fasting that I wish: releasing those bound unjustly, untying the thongs of the yoke; Setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke; Sharing your bread with the hungry, sheltering the oppressed and the homeless; Clothing the naked when you see them, and not turning your back on your own.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your wound shall quickly be healed; Your vindication shall go before you, and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer, you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!” Is_58:1-9a
There it is, beloved, THE LIST!
We ask, “What am I to do?” THIS is what we are to do! And why would I want to do that? What impact will it have on ME? . . . God will listen to us. God will answer us. We will be healed. We will find His peace. We will finally be filled! Feeling empty? Feeling missed, lonely, abandoned? Here is the secret formula. LOVE others!
And we can thank Jesus for showing us how!
