Bible Quotes Isaiah 1:16-17


===
“Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” -Isaiah 1:16-17

We can have everything and not see it. God is on our side. He has given of himself so that you may walk with Him. And yet you, as your people have done before you, have squandered his gifts. You have taken pleasure in His blessings without acknowledging the source of them. And there will be a reckoning. A reckoning you can avoid. 

You can keep and indulge in your blessings, but you need to pay your due. He wants your praise, but that is meaningless, an insult, if you don’t do what is right. And He has given you His Word so you know what is right. But you know what is wrong if you Know God, and allow him into your heart, to be the centre of our life. You can see what is just, and what is not. 

A number of people have had everything, and still they did not defend the oppressed, the fatherless and widows. But if you see such, and do nothing, you do evil.
