Your daily dose of Proverbs:
"Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy" - 31:19.
A rich man's money can defend his interests, but the poor must rely on others to speak on their behalf. What are you doing to help the poor and needy? Is there any way you can speak out on their behalf? How can you do that more often and effectively? Read how Elijah employed his prophetic ministry on behalf of the poor widow in 1 Kings 17:7-24 and then prayerfully consider how you can use your own gifts to help the poor in your own way.
