Multitudes of children around the world are left with no parental figure to provide or care for them. It is the great blessing of God’s people to recognize the needs of these children and share of their blessings. We often continue our spiritual exercises but only for selfish reasons. As scriptures instruct, it is the great challenge and opportunity of believers to be the hand of God to share, provide, and care for the needy and abandoned children of the world.
The great joy of investing in a life of neglect and poverty is available to all who will share. Instead of spending excessive funds on things we do not really need, it is our great challenge to open our eyes and hands to the multitudes of needy children here and around the world.
Jesus said “let the children come to me” which reminds us of the importance and value of a child. It is a great blessing to be a part of a lonely and rejected child that sees nothing but poverty and despair. We must be careful not to miss out on the great joy of investing in others. Many a child awaits the nourishment of a caring and sensitive person.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27
