Verbs – also known as ‘action words’

Pondered, this morning, Isaiah 1:17, in which God says this to his people:

Seek justice,
encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.

and I was struck by the verbs, their strength.

Seek,

encourage,

defend,

plead.

And I kind of wish he’d said something more like this

Consider justice,
smile at the oppressed.
Notice the cause of the fatherless,
mention the case of the widow.

‘Cause I can do those things.

In fact, already am.

And I say I follow him…but, my weak verbs are not what he requires…
