“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,” —James 1:27. Widows have a special place in God’s heart. They should also be special to the Christian man. The elders gave men in the early church the responsibility to look after widows. Among the Israelites it was the responsibility of the nearest kinsman to care for a widow. Naomi and Ruth gathered from the fields of Boaz, the kinsman of the widow Naomi. If we are brothers and sisters in Christ, then we are kinsmen to Christian widows. We should develop pure religion.

The KOF club was a wonderful thing for my oldest 3 girls when we lived a very isolated life caring for 3 baby boys! I can still hear my 3rd daughter's little voice in my mind as she would quote scripture she had memorized. Brings tears to my eyes.
