Which would you choose—a skiing holiday in Switzerland or rescuing children from danger in Prague? Nicholas Winton, just an ordinary man, chose the latter. In 1938, war between Czechoslovakia and Germany seemed on the horizon. After Nicholas visited refugee camps in Prague, where many Jewish citizens lived in horrible conditions, he felt compelled to come up with a plan to help. He raised money to transport hundreds of children safely out of Prague to Great Britain to be cared for by British families before the onset of World War II.

His actions exemplified those called for in Psalm 82: “Uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed” (v. 3). Asaph, the writer of this psalm, wanted to stir his people to champion the cause of those in need: “Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked” (v. 4). Like the children Nicholas worked tirelessly to rescue, the psalmist spoke for those who couldn’t speak for themselves—the poor and the widowed who needed justice and protection.

Today, everywhere we look we see people in need due to war, storms, and other hardships of life. Although we can’t solve every problem, we can prayerfully consider what we can do to help in the situations God brings into our lives.

Everywhere we look. Today we see people in need due to war storms and other hardships. Although we can't solve every problem we can prayerfully consider what we can do to help the situations God brings into our lives. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 82 verses three through four. Defend the weak and the fatherless upholds the cause of the poor and the oppressed rescue the weak and the needy. Deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Let's pray dear God, help us to be used by you wherever you call us to be and in whatever endeavor you want us to undertake. We consider it a privilege to be your hands and feet when the fatherless need a father. The poor need bread in the oppressed need a voice give us opportunities today to help others in need. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. All today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
