Showing Love To Widows

Thanksgiving Day approaching reminds us to express thankfulness. Did you know that showing love to others, especially those less fortunate than ourselves, helps our heart to enlarge to feel more gratitude?  Thanksgiving Day is a great time to show love and give to others by inviting them to share in your celebration.

Do you know a widow who is perhaps alone this Thanksgiving?  Perhaps her children live far away and aren’t able to visit her or maybe her family’s relationship is strained.  Maybe she has no one. 

God says in His Word (James 1:27) that, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Recently I ran across an excellent article which shares practical ways that you (and your church) can show love to widows:
Ministering to Widows  
If you’re not able to invite a widow to join you for Thanksgiving Dinner, maybe you’ll find another way to minister to widows by reading this helpful article.  It’s always amazing to me how God blesses me more than anyone when I do something for others–which at first seems difficult–in obedience to His Word!

  1. Jessica,
    You are so blessed! What a wonderful heritage. Are you still ministering to widows? I'd love to hear about what you and your father did.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I am so thankful that my dad taught me when I was young what a blessing it is to care for the widows in our church. He would often take me with when he went to visit them. I have such fond memories of my beautiful sisters in Christ, many of whom are now with the Lord.
