We all have a voice and while we may want to think that all of our voices are heard, the truth is that some voices get more attention than others. When we recognize that there are voices not being heard, we are called to take action. We are not supposed to speak instead of those not being heard, but we need to make their voices louder by using our voice!
God calls us to love one another and to help each other. As we grow and mature, we may sometimes lose sight of those that are not heard. We need to take time to assess the world around us to know who is not being heard. This requires us to listen for those that have been tuned out by the majority, those that are oppressed, or those that are too weak or lack the resources to speak out. It is only through listening and relying on God's strength that we can help amplify others' voices so they, too, can be heard and their rights protected!
Listen for those that cannot be heard and allow God to help you amplify the needs by using your voice!
Thank You for the voice that I have been given. Help me to know when and how to use my voice to help others and glorify You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
