Proverbs 31:8 & 9 Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Who do I defend? Who is it that I speak for? Do I only speak in my best interest, am I always fighting for my rights and ignoring the rights of others? Am I mute if the mute need a defender? Do I become poor in words when the poor need a speaker? Father I know people are your prize possession and loving people is my greatest responsibility. Help me to open my mouth when the poor, the fatherless and the defenseless need someone to stand up for them. Help me Lord to get all that I can get that I may give all that you have called me to give, in Jesus name. Amen
