In Proverbs (31:8-9) we are reminded to be the voice for those that do not have a voice. While it can be easy to standby and not become involved, we are called to open our mouths to defend the rights of others. We are to discern what is righteous, what is morally right according to God, and then stand up for what is right. Standing up and opening our mouths may be difficult, but God is with us to strengthen and guide us!
Don't stay quiet. Open your mouth and defend the rights of others!
Thank You for being there for me, for defending me and saving me. Please guide me when to stand up and give me the strength to stand up and speak up for the rights of others. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
