Scripture: Proverbs 31:8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Devotional: Today we shift from how we view the unborn, to what we are called to do about the injustice that abounds in our nation toward them.
As the chosen people of God, we are called to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and there are no more vulnerable persons in our midst than the unborn. They have no voice except for the voice of those who will stand in the gap for them.
It’s easy for us to believe in our hearts that these precious lives are valuable, but refuse to speak up because we fear being perceived in a negative light. We may be criticized or ostracized. We may be classified as a hater. And so, we remain silent.
But as Paul says to his apprentice Timothy: “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7) You have a voice. And God has called you to use it to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
How will you do that?
