Isaiah 1:16-17 ” Take your evil deeds out of My sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.”

The premise of these verses is pretty simple…stop doing wrong, learn to do right.  In other words, practice the truth…doing the right thing when you see injustice happening.  But this is usually  where fear jumps in and stops us from becoming involved.  We know what the Lord would want us to do…but stepping into an unknown situation can be scary.  But if we do choose to walk away, God sees it as indifference and blatant disregard for the oppressed.  The Lord has called all Believers to champion the causes of the vulnerable among us.  Let’s not allow fear and doubt to stop us from practicing the truth.
