God’s people have always been charged with caring for the poor, widows, and orphans. More than 2,000 verses in the Bible touch on this subject, none more powerfully than James, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”
We’ve not done a good job. Somehow, we need to consider how we are going to care for these needs.
We must not excuse ourselves by allowing other organizations to assume this responsibility.
It is time for spiritual leaders to take the lead regarding God’s justice.
