Our Obligation To Assist Others When Possible

Proverbs 31:8-9 

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; defend the rights of all those who have 


9 Speak up and judge fairly, and defend the rights of the poor and needy.” 


Through no fault of their own, many people are taken advantage of and are not able to defend 

themselves. Many accept the situation they are in because it has been that way their entire life 

and they do not know otherwise. We have a responsibility to step in and speak up for these 

people in need. If we see a person in a situation where we can assist, we need to step in and help, 

and if we cannot help personally we need to check and see who we can contact to look into the 


Our Lord Jesus cares for and loves each person, and we are His ambassadors on earth, and He 

reaches through us to touch other’s lives and help them.
