|Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.|
|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.|
This verse offers simple instructions on how we can please God by simply helping widows and orphans.
Is there a widow in your church or neighborhood who needs someone to listen? Or maybe she needs some help around the house or a ride to the store.
God has such a heart for the vulnerable and lonely. Pray that He will give you a heart for those in need, too.
