Proverbs 31:8-9 ” Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

If you have the chance, read the entire Oracle King Lemuel wrote (Proverbs 31:1-9)…a writing that his Mother actually taught him and he dedicated back to her. And if you read this Oracle in its entirety you will instantly see that the main points go far beyond how King Lemuel was to govern. This Oracle is something we can all take to heart and adhere to. The premise is clear, open up your mouth when you see oppression and abuse…defend and care about justice for the poor, orphan, and widow…be truthful, fair, and show no partiality towards the destitute, sick and dying. We have been placed on this earth to care for one another, not to judge harshly and condemn our fellow man.
