Doing What’s Right

We recommend this letter from the Missouri Union Presbytery.

Lord, we thank you for the life John Lewis and his dedication to justice.

Let us too hear and follow the words of your prophets –

This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of his oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the alien, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place.

Jeremiah 22:3

And of your Son –

“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39

And of your disciples –

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God. . . Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

1 Timothy 6:17-19

Help us O Lord to find ways to move forward together and build a more just economy and culture.

Amen
