From a Creighton Student's Perspective

The first verse of this passage states “Thus says the Lord: Observe what is right, do what is just…”(Is 56:1). This reminds me of Jesus’s interaction with some of the men with whom he travelled, telling them that they have fed him, clothed him, and served him through their services to the impoverished and diseased; “blessed is the man who does this”. Blessed is the man who, in this day and age, supports those who may be less fortunate than others. Perhaps buying someone food, or simply experiencing a community of homeless in a situation where all may gather together for what could be their one warm meal of an entire week. I believe that an interaction like this would be eye-opening to the American populous; for the entirety of the 100%.
Who knows, maybe we could all use a little more community in our lives to see not of what, but of who the world is truly made.
