Do you have a heart for orphans? Maybe you do, but you don't feel the pull on your heart to adopt. Maybe you just aren't at a place in your life where you can parent a child. Maybe your parenting days are behind you. Yet you still feel like there is something you could do to help a child join his or her forever family. Here's an opportunity for you. This family at Our Gifts from God is selling T-shirts to raise money for their adoption. I have ordered two shirts for us. I just love them. They say "Live simply so others can simply live." We have so much here in the States. I am guilty of spending money each month on things that are not necessary, and I have tried to think more about what I buy. Do I really need it? Is this an impulsive purchase. . .am I still going to want this item next week? Is there an eternal benefit to spending my money on such a thing? Live simply and give others a chance at life.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27 (NIV)
