Sunday worship service is at a. To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. Proverbs When you read from the Old Testament, you discover that it is filled with stories of sacrifices — the burning of grains and animals of all different kinds; often told in excruciating detail. And yet, in several places, such as this one from Proverbs, the ancient writers affirm that sacrifices, while they may have played a large role in the religious practices of the day, were not central. What mattered more — and what matters more — is the way that we treat one another through acts of kindness, mercy, fairness, and love. And so, each time we worship God — whether in groups or alone, in-person or socially distanced — we must remember that our religious practices and traditions are supposed to encourage, inspire, and point us to do righteousness and justice. This might mean sharing our resources with those who are hungry or thirsty; giving our attention to people who are hurting or lonely; working for educational opportunities, racial equality, or environmental justice. Granted, this may need to happen in different ways: maybe not face-to-face, possibly with fewer or at least different companions, probably in venues that are scary and uncomfortable. But, we cannot pretend that there is no injustice to be faced; that there is not unrighteousness to be addressed.
