Favoring the Oppressed and Marginalized

Psalm 9:9-20

The insistence that comes in the name of God (perhaps) is always going to favor the oppressed and marginalized. It will be an outpost of support for the afflicted. That is one thing on which they (and you) can always count. Let your actions be a grand and glorious testimony to God’s commonwealth of peace and tender justice. Those behaviors won’t count for much among the structures of society, which is a radically different and far-reaching path, one that is destructive and immoral. It is a path that does not commend itself in the name of God.
