“Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court.” (Pro 22:22)

In our world, wherever we find ourselves, there will be those less fortunate than we are. If we live in a developed nation, we are merely by geographic location part of the privileged few.

We would be wise to consider the plight of those around us who do not have the advantages that we have. When we are in a position of authority or placed at some kind of hierarchical advantage, we must wait, think, empathize, and act with constraint. Don’t take advantage just because you can. We have been forgiven much, and we are expected to act in kind.

Quick Prayer: Keep me mindful of those who are less fortunate. Amen.
