Many people naturally assume that the only way to obey God's command to care for orphans is to become a fostering family, but that is far, far from the truth! Every act of service or gift given toward a fostering family is orphan care, and people are often surprised by just how many ways they can make a deep impact in support of a fostering family. From the emotional reinforcement of a simple encouraging text message, to the preparation of a meal, to the practical blessings of offering to pick up the kids from an event — or to pick up after the kids when the house is in disarray — every burden lifted or shared is appreciated.
Pray today that God would open your eyes to needs both great and small, not only of "the fatherless", but also of those parents and families who are already striving to fill that role in young lives.
