Rather than those who strive for advanced spirituality, God's holy people are those who help the needy.

This wonderful passage from Isaiah shows no appreciation for acting like holy men and women, bowing like reeds before the Lord, working at acquiring a reputation for sanctity.

Rather it describes courses of action that will cause “Your light to break forth like the dawn, and your wound to be quickly healed.”

What are the courses of action he describes? They are working toward relieving the poor of their hardships, providing shelter and good meals.

If is not practicable for us to engage directly in rendering such assistance, we should financially and in other ways align ourselves with those caring for the helpless people God loves.
