Devotion for October 1

Isaiah 10:1-2

Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.

There is a new law in Tennessee that prohibits camping on public land in the state. Places such as court house lawns, right of ways and land in public trust. This law was enacted so lawmakers could rise early and avoid protesters at the statehouse. It infringes on the homeless in our state and is discomforting to think that if i had to sleep somewhere other than my bed out of necessity IĀ could be roused from my sleep because of circumstances. Pray to God we repeal this law and pray for those affected. Amen.
