Thoughts on Today's Verse...

I can't help but think of what James, Jesus' brother said: "Pure religion, undefiled before God the Father is this: keep oneself undefiled and care for orphans and widows in their distress." Jesus showed clearly this was the Father's heart in his ministry. Now it is up to us to continue it!

My Prayer...

Father, may my life, my compassion, and my ministry reflect your heart for those who need care and protection, and love. Give me eyes to see this need more clearly and a heart to respond more certainly so that your love may be demonstrated through me. In the precious name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
