Today's Verse : Jeremiah 7:5-7


July 5, 2012

If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with
each other justly, if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless
or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if
you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you
live in this place, in the land I gave your forefathers for ever
and ever.
-- Jeremiah 7:5-7

What is the true measure of our character? Certainly it is not
merely how we act "at church." The real test of our character, our
godliness, is our partnership with him in his work of redeeming the
lost, forgotten, downtrodden, and broken. When we live only for
ourselves, when the "have-nots" are left so far behind, a culture
collapses upon itself because it lacks the heart of God, and people
become jealous and resentful of one another.

Loving God, Almighty and Sovereign Lord, please forgive us and
use your children to heal our land. Father, I especially pray that
you will use me to be a blessing to someone who has no one to whom
he or she can turn in times of crisis. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
