Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27
God knows we struggle with that, because He’s the one who made us physical. So He gives us practical ways to sing to Him a thousand love songs. “Take care of orphans,” He says. “Look out for the helpless, for people who cannot defend themselves, for grannies on fixed incomes, and children without fathers.” When we take on the burdens of people who are not our responsibility, we are loving God. When we say “NO!” to our fleshly desires, turn away from temptation, and discipline ourselves to be obedient to Him, we are loving God. When we make a choice simply because He wants us to, He notices and approves. Those physical offerings are translated into heavenly currency and are gladly received by our loving Father.
