Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. (NLT) ( Proverbs 31:9 )
Defend The Needy
While meditating on this verse, I heard a resounding “yes” answer to the question: Should believers speak up when we see injustice being carried out around them? The wisdom of God’s word pushes us to move past our affiliations, comfort zones, and tells us each to be an advocate for those we come across in our lives that need help being heard. Inaction is not something the Bible makes room for.
What an uncomfortable truth, for me and for all of us who would rather live life blinded to the needs of others in our communities. What does action look like? There is not one size-fits-all answer to this question.
Three steps to take to find your way to help:
- and then take God-inspired action.
What have you done to be a voice of the voiceless in your community ?
Before you answer this question, please listen to a short sermon by Prophet Ezekiel Nk.
