Today's reading: Psalm 82:1-8
Psalm 82 is a calling out for people in a place of authority and/or leadership to act rightly and wisely as overseers of people. In a time of need, the psalmist earnestly prays, not specifically for himself but for the people around him that Godly justice would be given to the weak, afflicted, and poor. The psalm ends with a direct appeal to God for His justice for an unjust world.
How aware are you of people in need? Is it your practice to pray for the welfare of others—for those in need in your community, nation, or other places around the world? In addition to prayer, how are you helping the weak, afflicted, and poor? Tami
