It amazed a man who lived in a densely populated compound when a mother raced from the common bathroom to her room some distance away upon hearing the cry of her baby. The man wondered: “How did the nursing mother pick out the faint call of her baby in the riot of noises in the environment?” Even he who was in an apartment closer to the child did not hear the toddler. It was a mystery to him.

The text today shows us a far greater wonder than the bond between a mother and her infant. He who created the unseen link between a needy child and its absent parent, says He is always aware of the plaintive pleadings of the oppressed anywhere they may be. He makes this known to the children of Israel three months after their freedom from Egypt. He cautions them on how not to treat widows, orphans and strangers.

In His incomparable compassion towards these underprivileged persons, He says He has set up a direct channel of communication with them to enable Him to attend to their cry and fight those who oppress them. While He loves the poor, He is against witchcraft, bestiality, disrespect for constituted authority, uncleanness and usury. The Lord presented the new life that would characterize the new ways of the children of Israel in a new dispensation now and in the Promised Land.

Believers are given laws in the Bible to guide them in their pilgrimage to heaven. He wants us to live by His word and explore all His promises. He is closer to us than we can imagine. We can cry to Him when we are lonely or deserted by friends and relatives and expect Him to answer us even before we call. But we must detest what He detests. That is the only way to secure an audience with God.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: He hears you when you cry!
