Love Your Neighbor

ss15 Tarmann children

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widow in their distress…”

The Christian religion is based on two great commandments: Love the Lord with all the heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Jesus taught in conjunction with this the credited ‘Golden rule’: Do to others what you would want done to you. And so – if the Christian truly wants to be adopted into the family of God as per Galatians 4, then they will indeed not spurn the opportunity to provide for others, especially orphans in need of a father and mother. We all serve in different ways. With some it is financial benevolence; with some it is skills of management; with others it is encouragement. Search your own heart and skill set in order to apply James’ great exhortation to help the child in distress. (Borrowed from Jeremy Dehut, SS Birmingham)
