UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: When people feel helpless and angry, they seek help from others. What hope is there that the conditions of the powerless will be addressed? Solomon’s wise decision confirms that God loves justice, and Isaiah affirms that the righteous will be vindicated.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: God wants us to share an intimate relation with Himself in which He will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves—that is, to make us like Himself, to make us behave as He does.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we give you thanks for your redeeming grace and for your Son, Jesus Christ, who makes it possible. Help us never to lose hope even in the direst situation. Enable us to see that change and transformation are always possible when we put our trust in you. In the Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
