Your daily dose of Proverbs:
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute” - 31:8.
The poor and disenfanchised have no one to speak up and stand for them. Jesus was clear that their needs must be part of your life and work. We know this because His disciples made this work an important part of their ongoing ministry after He left. What are you doing to help those who cannot help themselves? You may want to read what James wrote about this very practice in James 1:27 and James 2:1-4.
Five hundred dollars came in today for Operation Chicken Coop and some other donations came in this past week for the Sophia Fund and Deborah Foundation. Thank You, Lord! Pictured to the right are some of the children at the Upako Center who are impacted by your generosity (that is a classroom they are in; some of them even sleep there.)
If these daily devotionals have been a blessing to you this year, please consider a token of appreciation that will help HIV/AIDS orphans and widows in Kenya as we approach this holiday season. Read how you can do something significant for them here and here. Thank you!
