Thought-provoking post offering 5 items EVERY Christian should consider in relation to adoption. (James 1:27) https://adivineencounter.com/the-orphan-epidemic

Today I hope you’ll visit me at Satisfaction Through Christ, where I’m writing about something close to my heart…and God’s!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice  to the afflicted and needy.” (Psalm 82:3)

 “Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” (Isaiah 1:17)
“The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.” (Psalm 146:9)
“A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation.” (Psalm 68:5)
“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.” (James 1:27)

If you truly want to get to know God’s heart more intimately, He splays it out openly in these verses and others just like them. So go back and reread them if you need to! Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

For many of us, if we’re being honest, these are passages that we would rip out of our Bibles if we could manage to do so without being irreverent.
