Who Will You Help?
Job 29:11-16 Whoever heard me spoke well of me, and those who saw me commended me, because I rescued the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to assist them. The one who was dying blessed me; I made the widow’s heart sing. I put on righteousness as my clothing; justice was my robe and my turban. I was eyes to the blind and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy; I took up the case of the stranger.
Job knew what was important in this life and he lived out that knowledge every day. He pursued those who couldn’t help themselves with the desire to help them. He actively sought out those we try to avoid because they might ask us for help.
Look at this list of people whom Job helped; the poor, the fatherless, and so on, and consider if you may know one of these. And then, go; take up their case; show them unusual kindness.
