Loving the Fatherless
What does loving the fatherless mean? The Apostle James said pure religion is to open your eyes and see the fatherless, to care for them, protect them, and help them (James 1:27). Sometimes love is demonstrated just by being with the child, making no demands, but gently and patiently allowing the child to express his or her fears as Brent shared in the precious story 17 Hours.
Brent and his wife, Christine, have a heart for loving the fatherless. As you may be aware, fatherlessness is rising and the father wounds are growing. On top of this, if one had an absentee father or an abusive father, it creates difficulty for them to be able to relate to the merciful Father heart of God.
“Loving the fatherless happens when God’s love is selflessly show cased through God’s people.”
Brent and Christine foster children but they also have adopted 5. Together, they model for the Body of Christ the reality of caring for the orphans.
