The Lord Sees

To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land, to deny people their rights before the Most High, to deprive them of justice— would not the Lord see such things? Lamentations 3:34-36

Does the Lord notice the underdog’s plight? God loves the poor and down-and-out. Jesus seemed more comfortable with them rather than the power elite of the day.

Jesus noticed the people no one else cared about. In the Parable of the Great Banquet (Luke 14), Jesus invites the down-and-out because the power brokers of the day were too busy buying land and oxen. What and who the world ignores, God notices. The hurting ones, the world does not see, God sees and He cares.

He would not have us crush the less fortunate under our feet; He would not have us deny the rights of anyone. We are not to deprive any man of justice. Why? Because the Lord says so and He see the injustices we ignore or allow. Yes, the Lord sees.

This Memorial Day, remember men and women have fought to defend the rights of everyone no matter if they are powerful elite or the down-and-out. Remember, America stands for freedom and justice. Fight for what is right and remember, the Lord sees these things.
