Scripture for the day is Proverbs 29:7

The righteous care about justice for the poor,
    but the wicked have no such concern.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, “the poor” exist in my mind as a faceless entity, and so I can’t begin to know how to help. Send me instead some friends who, with me, can see the faces of actual poor people with concrete needs, so I can see a way forward for answering your call to care about justice. Amen.
