Learn to Do Good

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Whom can I trust, if my compan-
ions cruelly devise
to ruin me, their peaceful friend,
and break the strongest ties?
 —Psalm 55:20
Suggested tune: Manoah (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.
—Isaiah 1:17
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
It is as unsuitable to those that are gracious to be unjust, as that the egg of a crow should drop from a hen, or venomous berries should grow upon a choice vine. That grace that is put into our hearts which makes us submissive and dutiful to God, also makes us kind and harmless to other people.
—Thomas Manton (alt.)
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Teach me goodness according to your Word, O Lord, that I may seek justice for my neighbors...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
