Helping the Vulnerable

If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will be established forever. Proverbs 29:14

What does it matter to a king if he judges the poor unfairly? He’s got power, fame, and riches so why should he even care for the poor?

It’s interesting to note the things that God takes seriously regarding injustices: orphans, widows, the poor, foreigners. All of these categories of people have one thread that unites them: they are all vulnerable segments of most societies and the potential for others to abuse them is high.

We as a society and as individuals must go out of our way to help these people. Since God mentions them regularly throughout the Old and New Testaments, we would do well to go out of our way to help them as well.

Think of one way you can do just that this week. Then do it.
