Isaiah and the prophets condemned Israel’s insensitivity to the poor as covenant breaking. They taught that materialism and ignoring the poor are sin; whereas, mercy to the poor is evidence of true worship.

Grace Changes Our Work
Grace Changes Everything • May 14, 2017 • Paul Stewart
Human beings were given work to do in the garden, before the fall - before sin and before anything was wrong with the world. Work, therefore, is something we were designed to do. But work, like everything else, has been corrupted and the meaning and motivation behind our work has changed. Without God work becomes about self-provision or self-justification. With God our work can become the gracious expression of creative energy in the service of others.
