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.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
2 Timothy 3:17
That the man of God may be perfect , thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
1 Timothy 6:18
That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
...these little ones,...their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in Heaven
Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
An whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
Here is a an amazing, gripping, too realistic short video that demonstrates the plight of children in foster care. I link with permission.

After you watch it, please pray with me:
Dear Father in Heaven,
I know you care about all children, and I know that many times it is man's sin that leads to children being in need and vulnerable to a lacking social system.
Please help each of us to grow, and be part of a solution for someone in need.
Bless those hands and hearts
that are presently serving,
and show others how they may help,
by giving of time,
treasures or resources,
Help us to be rich in good works for the children,
the parents, and foster parents that need support,
the social workers, and church organizations,
to minister Christ's LOVE and truth.
In Jesus's name we pray, AMEN
I would be very glad for you to share this post, for the children........and if you are knowledgeable about resources or have something helpful to add or would like me to include another link I would be VERY GLAD to consider that. I want to help the cause!
