In the wake of one tragedy- the death of Robin Williams- news of another that will not make the headlines because we as Christians, as the church, as inhabitants of the wealthiest nation on this planet, have failed him. I have failed him. Every time I chose to spend my energy, my time, my money on something that has no eternal significance. We have failed not only him, but countless others. We are not the voice and the advocate for the orphan as we are called to be. If you hold Scripture as the Truth to be lived and not just read, there is no excuse.
As a friend said, “If this dos not bother you in a profound way, you need a heart check,”
Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles, and refuse to let the world corrupt us.
