Rescue those who are being taken away to death;Proverbs 24:11 (ESV)
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
For the longest time when I read this verse, I thought of an intense action movie. I pictured donning some spy gear and infiltrating a place where injustice is happening. I imagined pulling someone out of danger in the nick of time. I got excited about being an action-star type rescuer.
But now, I’m reminded of Jesus.
