Those Unable to Speak
"Open your mouth on behalf of those unable to speak, for the legal rights of the dying" psalm 31:8. I have read this passage before, just not slowly and deliberately. So many things came at me. Abortion, what about the babies who never had a voice? Children, what about the ones who are never taken to church, never given the chance to hear the gospel? The elderly, what about the ones who can't remember and are just put in a home until the end? What about the girl who is pregnant and unmarried and scared and alone? What about the drug addict who desperately wants to quit but does not know how, or is given the chance. I am to be the voice for those. I am suppose to tell people to "listen" to them. Really hear what they are saying. Stop judging and help!
