Orphans No Longer

Reposted from January 25, 2013 by


All commands given by God have this in common: they are easy to say, but hard to live.

In this post, I want to focus on one of these commands: to care for orphans in their distress (James 1:27).

The cause of the orphan is of late getting the attention that it deserves within the Christian community.  An orphan is any child who is unloved, unwanted, or unprotected.  Perhaps she is in an orphanage; perhaps they are the siblings who are watching their parents cook meth.  He may be the child who has been bounced around from one foster home to another.  She may be the hardened girl who has been coerced into prostitution.

There are numerous ways to obey the command to care for orphans.   Some adopt children.  Others foster children temporarily. Some just identify vulnerable kids in their neighborhood and give them a safe place to go after school.  But no matter how you obey, like all commands, there is a personal cost.
