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.
Devotional
I don’t know about you but I love this verse, it moves me to compassion it moves me to make a difference, it moves me to speak out.
It moves me to speak out even if my voice shakes.
Yes, it does!
I work as a primary school Chaplain and I love my role, I really do.
There are sometimes that I need to speak up there are sometimes when I need to have those difficult conversations.
They are not always easy, but they are necessary.
I also am a mentor for girls and women going through an eating disorder and I love this role.
I love this role where I am able to share my journey and help others.
I do need to speak truth and compassion in this role.
I am not a person who loves confrontation, I really am not.
I tend to shrink back.
I have come to realise for me that when there is injustice it moves me.
Where there is injustice I am moved to speak up, I am moved to make a difference.
I am prepared to stand in the gap to help others.
I know that I am not doing this alone and I know that God is with me.
I am always prayerful when these situations arise.
What is something that you stand up for?
What is something that you are passionate about?
What moves you?
I would love to hear from you.
