Justice for the Poor

Deuteronomy 24:10-21

When you reap your harvest in your field and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it, it shall be left for the alien, the orphan, and the widow, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all your undertakings. Deuteronomy 24:19 NRSV

At times, justice takes the form of compassion for those who have been left out, marginalized, and forgotten.
