I never planned to care about orphans or their plight.
I’m just a regular mom, with a mortgage and carpool, who loves sweet tea and home decor.
But caring for orphans was God’s plan for me.
And before you sigh in relief…….
it is God’s plan for you.
Every believer in Christ should be actively involved in the global orphan crisis. We should all ask God, “Should we adopt??” If the answer is no, than that is just the beginning–not the end.
If we believe the Word of God, James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” then we all have a responsibility.
True religion: That’s what summed it up for me. If I want to follow Christ, then caring for orphans, widows, the poor, is a basic requirement of Christianity.
