Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8-9)
God is looking for ambassadors, those who are willing and bold enough to speak the truth to those appointed to die, the world. Those without Christ are the poor of this world. It matters not their income or possessions. If they are void of Christ, they are impoverished, poor and needy. Someone needs to tell them the truth. Someone needs to love them enough to show them the way of eternal prosperity. Someone needs to deliver them from the talons of death. Someone needs to open his or her mouth. To possess the riches of eternal life and not share it is the highest form of selfishness and greed. The poor of this world and the poor of eternity need to be reached. We must make sure that they are fed both physically and spiritually, the later of greater significance. We are to plead the cause of the poor, which is to deliver them from their poverty.
