where you gonna run to?
Good afternoon sisters and brothers,
Today's reading is a stark wake up call to that part of all of us that is comfortable while others are in need. God judges justly; there's mercy for all, but also a stop to injustice. Today's daily reading also comes with a video, and my sister in law, Dana gets credit for introducing me to the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBa4DvSkjJs
Ah, you who make iniquitous decrees, who write oppressive statutes, 2to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be your spoil, and that you may make the orphans your prey! 3What will you do on the day of punishment, in the calamity that will come from far away? To whom will you flee for help, and where will you leave your wealth, 4so as not to crouch among the prisoners or fall among the slain? For all this his anger has not turned away; his hand is stretched out still.
