Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82:3-4 (NIV)
As Christians, we sometimes keep our beliefs to ourselves. We don’t want to offend people in case they don’t believe the way we do. However, that is not what God called us to do. The Bible tells us we need to defend those who can’t defend themselves. We need to take up the cause of the poor and oppressed. We need to rescue the weak and needy. What is the best way to support a cause? Do something!
- What can you do to support those in need?
- Has God given you a creative idea to make a difference that you haven’t acted on yet? If so, what are your next steps to put it into action?
- Do you know a person who needs your support?
Determine the steps you need to take to support the cause that God has put in your heart. Next, put those steps into action!
