Psalm 68 - Bonus Post

Psalm 68
5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. 

6 God sets the lonely in families

All through scripture we see that God cares for - and wants us to care for - the widows and the fatherless. Here is how James words it. 

James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress

God sets the lonely in families, but more often than not He uses US to care for the widows and the fatherless. Are there widows or widowers near you (church, neighbors, Sr. adult assisted living places) that you should adopt as part of your family? Are you one of the families that God wants to set a lonely person in?

Do you need to be a foster care family? An adoptive family? A family that provides respite? (which means you care for foster children for a weekend when the foster family needs help)

God is probably calling you and your family to be a family that He can set a lonely person in. Why wouldn't He call you to do that?
