Priorities

I read this today in Zechariah and it stuck out to me. People are asking the Lord if He still wants them to do these fasts they've been doing for 70 years. The Lord asks if they're really doing it for Him and then tells them,

"Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. In your hearts do not think evil of each other." (7.8-10)

It seems like He's saying, "These are the things I really care about. So why don't you focus on that?"

Man. I need to get better at all of those things.
