Friday, August 12 — Psalm 96:10-13
Joshua 19:10–39; Luke 16:16–31
The Lord executes justice for the oppressed; he gives food to the hungry. Psalm 146:7
Jesus took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute; and they distributed them to the crowd. Mark 8:6
God of justice, all around us, we see the effects of greed and injustice. We know we are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, but we are also citizens of our community and nation. May we show your love and justice throughout all our manifestations as citizens. Amen.
