Reflections: We all have a voice. We all have a platform. Whether it be to our family and friends, or on social media, or on a bigger platform, we all have an opportunity to speak out for those who can’t speak for themselves. When we look at how God raised up Isaiah, Jeremiah, Esther, Daniel, Paul and many others to speak out, it reminds us that he can raise up anyone! In our times we’ve seen Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, and many other Christian leaders to defend the rights of the poor and the needy. They say that “Evil prospers, when good men do nothing.” We can all do something to speak up. Think about what platform God has given you. How can you use that platform to speak up for those who can’t speak?
Prayers: Father God grant me boldness to speak up for those who can’t speak. Give me words of wisdom to defend the rights of the poor and needy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
