Day 32: Justice
The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
O Father of justice and mercy, thank you for taking pity on me. Keep me from judging others harshly and help me to extend your grace and mercy to those I should serve. Remind me of my transgresses that I may remember the grace you’ve shown me. Where there is injustice, may I stand up for the oppressed. May the love of Christ soften the hearts of the oppressors and abusers. May your will, not mine, be done. Amen.
How will Jesus show up in my day today?
Do I have the eyes and ears to see and hear the wonders of his love and mercy?
How will I experience his grace? Will I see something miraculous? Something hope-filled that will transform me?
