“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,” —James 1:27. Widows have a special place in God’s heart. They should also be special to the Christian man. The elders gave men in the early church the responsibility to look after widows. Among the Israelites it was the responsibility of the nearest kinsman to care for a widow. Naomi and Ruth gathered from the fields of Boaz, the kinsman of the widow Naomi. If we are brothers and sisters in Christ, then we are kinsmen to Christian widows. We should develop pure religion.

Thanks so much! My children are loving our Keepers nights. We have only been doing it a few months, but we are all enjoying it. It gives me a wonderful (scheduled) time with my girls and my husband time with our sons which we had never really made happen. It's a blessing in more than one way.
