Cry Freedom

Cry Freedom is an old film which tells part of Steve Biko’s story – an anti-apartheid activist. He and many others fought tirelessly against apartheid to the point where lives were lost. I don’t know if faith played a role for Biko but I see a similar hunger for justice in the Scriptures.

Isaiah 1:17 uses the phrase ‘seek justice, defend the oppressed’. A radical way to show God’s love is by seeking justice and defending the oppressed. It could be seeking justice in climate change, poverty, abuse, etc. The list is endless.

Ask God to stir your heart to seek justice and defend the oppressed today.
