Want some pure religion? The Bible says that pure religion is taking care of widows and orphans in their distress. (James 1:27)
These days, in this country, it’s hard to find a truly distressed widow, but they are around if we look. So look. 🙂
And orphans are everywhere.
There are permanent and temporary orphans in every city.
They are the children in foster care.
“Okay,” you say, “But what can I do? I don’t know any orphans personally.”
Give to foster agencies. They are constantly in need of funding to help these kids. “Giving Tuesday” is now, if you have to have a designated day!
Or be a foster parent. Some of you have never had your life touched by an orphan, but you feel like doing the right thing . . .
So get some true religion and do it.
Look in the phone directory for an agency, or donate through Amazon Smile, which gives 5% of your purchases to a charity of choice. Here are two great ones if you are so inspired: Pathway Caring for Children and Beyond Trauma and Attachment. (The latter is not a foster agency but helps families who are raising foster and adoptive children from trauma situations.)
May you be truly blessed as you bless the less fortunate around you! 😀 Nealie
