Dzifah Tamakloe

God seems to have a superior affection for orphans and widows and the poor simply because they are the most vulnerable among us. God has widows, orphans, and the vulnerable (poor) at heart. His desire is for them to be loved, protected, and sheltered. There are instances in His word where He vowed to deal with anyone who dealt with orphans wrongly. Find out some scriptures about Orphans, widows, and the poor.

A lot of us donate to a charity for a reason. Before the majority of people give time, or money, they would have had something motivating them. For instance, people who show empathy for orphans and the vulnerable might have: 

• Grown up in care

• been involved in a group that does charity

 • Felt moved when they heard someone share a heartbreaking personal story at an event or in the news 

• Experienced childhood neglect or abuse personally

This is not what God wants to do but rather, our Father desires that we give and support orphans and the vulnerable regardless. Ye are the light of the world.
