This past Sunday was Orphan Sunday at our church where we studied 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."
Let's all take this message seriously because orphans are greatly disadvantaged in this world. They are struggling in the world. It is our job to step up and make a difference. When we care for orphans and widows it helps us from being polluted by the world because we see the reality of how God sees "worldly" possessions. When you serve the orphans and widows you are challenged more to live unpolluted. When we live unpolluted we get closer to the heart of the Father.
