If we as believers and followers of Christ cannot defend the weak, who will? In Psalm 82:3 Asaph says, Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. The powerful people of this world have the ability to do what they will, sometimes with little or no regard for others. If we do not stand for those who cannot stand for themselves, then no one will. We are to be a reflection of Christ who would have stood for the weak if He were here today.
