God cares for orphans, Part 1

Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan. If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry. My anger will be aroused, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives will become widows and your children fatherless. Exodus 22: 22-24

I am so thankful that God in Heaven recognizes the needs of orphans and does not forget them. They are one of the special groups of people to whom he has given attention since the beginning. He hears their cry. It can be perplexing to understand how to help, but God's stance on orphans is clear: He loves them, and it's an abomination to Him when they are mistreated.
