Isaiah 1:17 - Defend the cause of the fatherless

Compassion Week - Day 1

Today the team and I are visiting a Compassion project in Quito, Ecuador. The project we are visiting serves infants and their mothers through Compassion's Child Survival Program as well as Compassion's traditional Christian child sponsorship program. This project, like all Compassion projects, is church based and administered through a local church and body of believers. I am looking forward to posting pictures and details tomorrow.

-Carl, Steward,

Isaiah 1:17
NIV learn to do right!
Seek justice,
encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.
KJV Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
NASBLearn to do good;
Seek justice,
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
Isaiah 1:17


Concern for orphans and widows in need is a demonstration of godliness (James 1:27). Children and widows are often powerless in a hostile world and need caring individuals to speak and act on their behalf. Because God cares deeply for poor orphans and widows, so should we!
