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. – James 1:27

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. Is there an orphan who needs love or a home-cooked meal?

God has such a heart for the vulnerable and lonely. Pray that He will give you a heart for those in need, too.
