Why should anyone care about the plight of orphaned children?

Duty, guilt, or idealism won’t motivate us to love orphans for the long-term. The vastness of the problem will always outstrip our enthusiasm to solve it. We must be motivated by a profound understanding of God’s grace.

We care for orphans and vulnerable children because we have been cared for by Christ

Because Christ stepped into our brokenness, we choose to immerse ourselves into hard and broken places to care for orphans.

“The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.”

John 1:5

What is an orphan?

The biblical concept of the orphan and fatherless means to be bereaved of teacher, guardian, and guide.

It includes more than just the boy or girl who has lost one or both parents. Rather, it describes the child who faces the world without the provision, protection, and nurture that parents uniquely provide.

God calls His people to reflect His heart and character in choosing to “defend the cause of the fatherless” (Psalm 82:3), to “visit the orphan and widow in their distress” (James 1:27), and to “set the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6).
