Speak up and judge fairly;

    defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Proverbs 31:9

What does it take to do the right thing? Is it money? Free time? Powerful status in your community? Lots of friends and helpers? How do we start doing the right thing when we are starting from the beginning?

We speak up!

The tool we all have, from the smallest person to the greatest, is our voice. When you see someone in need, use your voice to help. We are able to be defenders of the poor and needy, no matter how poor or needy we may be so long as we speak up!


Creator God, provider of all good things, thank you for my voice and my ability to express myself. Help me to use that voice in some way to help someone today. Amen
