Zechariah 7:9-10 (NIV) 9 “This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’
Teach us, Oh Lord, how to be a community of faith! Lead us towards justice, fairness, equality, and impartiality. Help us to care for the least of them just as Christ cared for us when He obediently laid down His life for sins we committed against His Father. Teach us to have compassion for those who don’t have anything in common with us, but help us to recognize that they, too, are your precious ones.
