Friday, August 30: A driving rain that leaves no crops

Daily ScripturesShort and wise sayings from the Old Testament book of Proverbs will provide our daily scriptures this week.

Read Proverbs 28:3

A ruler who oppresses the poor

is like a driving rain that leaves no crops.


What's being expressed in the word picture of this proverb? Rain is good for crops, right? But what's the difference between that and "a driving rain"? And how does this relate to oppressing the poor?


Both now and whenever you encounter Scripture, ask God to illumine it and make it clearer to you. Today, ask him to show his people how to work alongside the poor and how to work against their oppression.
