God Almighty is the Helper of Widows and He wants mankind also to replicate the same to victims here on earth.
The word of the sages in the holy book says; Honour widows that are widows indeed. That we should take care of widows who are destitute.
Honour extends from basic respect, all the way to financial and material provision.
The book of James summarizes God’s compassion, love, and mercy for the widows.
It went further to say in James 1:27 – that, Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this:
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
To visit orphans and widow is a vital part of the verse.
We were admonished to take very good care of the widows. And majorly to visit them, by doing this not only are we honouring God but we are also doing ourselves good.
There is a joy within, a joy that comes from putting smiles on people’s faces and being a blessing to humanity.
We have to make it a deliberate effort to reach out to the homeless, the fatherless, and the wise always.
These visits should be deliberate, involving regular personal contact and practical involvement with those in need.
Our visit and reaching out to them most times bring joy to their soul, lift their spirit, take away their loneliness, and remind them that there are those who still care so much about them.
God himself holds them in high esteem, we should do the same by being compassionate to them Ps.68.5 – Father of orphans, champion of widows, is God in his holy house.
Being loving, caring, helpful and supportive. We shouldn’t hold back financial support from them.
We need to also provide for their basic needs.
Let’s not neglect so great and previous ministry, a ministry so dear to God’s heart.
That’s why Supportive Pillar Foundation is so special and one of the Rare Kinds. We visited widows in our last outreach for the month of February 2023. A special visit at that. We took them by surprise going to their homes to feel with them, pray with them and give them packages as a show of Love to them.
With the support of our partners and donors all around the world. We were able to visit more than 5 locations in Lagos State impacting more than 50 widows.
We are grateful to God and all our partners and donors for helping us to impact lives.
