The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD, and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. For the tyrant will be no more and the arrogant will have gone. Is. 29:19-20
Lord, our perspective on the world can be very different from the perspective of the Scriptures. They often view the world from the perspective of the poor, the downtrodden, and the oppressed. At Your birth, there was no room for You in the inn. Help me to see the world from the perspective of those who are poor, of those who are not welcome in the inn. Help me to see the world through the eyes of the undocumented immigrant, the unemployed, the homeless—for that is Your perspective. Amen.
