Daily Inspirations

Friday, February 12

This, rather, is the fasting that I wish: / releasing those bound unjustly, / untying the thongs of the yoke; / Setting free the oppressed, / breaking every yoke; / Sharing your bread with the hungry, / sheltering the oppressed and the homeless; / Clothing the naked when you see them, / and not turning your back on your own.
—ISAIAH 58:6–7

God desires more than personal acts of devotion and piety. They are meaningless unless we are transformed by them and strengthened to work for the transformation of the world God loves.
