A sense of exile

Dan Cruver of Together for Adoption has a good series of posts on why the gospel is central to caring for the widows and orphans in their affliction (James 1:27).

His conclusion from “Caring for Orphans While Soaked with a Sense of Exile“:

The gospel takes those who are marked with a deep sense of exile, frees them from the “need” to self-medicate, and moves them out to serve the orphan, the widow, and the marginalized. Only by the power of the gospel can we do the self-sacrificial work of caring for orphans while soaked with the sense of exile.

Read how a ‘sense of exile’ is crucial to adoption from the whole post here.

Thoughtful and worth the read.
