From: Reveal toolkit: Influencing decision-makers

Tools sharing good practice on influencing the decisions, policies and practices of powerful decision-makers in order to address underlying causes of poverty, bring justice and support good development

This Bible study is based on Amos 5:1-24 and Micah 6:8.

It makes the following key points:

  • We should take time to listen and observe the needs of others.
  • We should not do things in our own timing, but prepare and seek wisdom in when and how to speak out.
  • Collaboration is often essential for effective advocacy.
