Courts and the Poor

Watching poor folks deal with the courts can be extremely disheartening. Be sure though, God watches as well.

Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.
Exodus 23:6
Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favouritism to the great, but judge your neighbour fairly.
Le. 19:15
Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.
Proverbs 22:22-23
