Freedom from the Past, Hope for the Future

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice 
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free 
and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter — 
when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?Isaiah 58: 6,7
