Monday, March 18 — Psalm 37:16–22
Nehemiah 9:1–10:27; Romans 5:12–6:4
Woe to those who make unjust laws, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed. Isaiah 10:1,2 NIV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
God, give us the strength to seek justice in our world. May we be advocates for the poor and oppressed. Do not let us give in to the greed of this world. Transform us to transform this world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
