Sojourners Verse and Voice – 1 May 2023

May 1, 2023

Verse of the day
For the scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain” and “The laborer deserves to be paid.”

– 1 Timothy 5:18

Voice of the day
Yet, wages are an ever-evolving struggle, and workers desperately need people to show up and stand on their side to demand a living wage. When wages are $8, $10, and $11 an hour, workers aren’t worth their wage; they’re worth far more.

– Matt Bernico, “Wage Against the Machine

Prayer of the day
On this International Workers Day, we remember that a worker is worth their wages. In a world built on systems that exploit workers, may we fight for and affirm the dignity of all who labor.
