MMM Day 7: Do Not Afflict Widows or Orphans

March Mitzvot Madness Day 7

YHWH is so loving! Since we are to be a reflection of Him, let us show great love and compassion for others, including widows and orphans. My heart goes out to those in that situation. Even those that have extended family must find the loneliness of losing a spouse or parent devastating. Lift these dear ones up in prayer today as you read these words.

You are not to abuse any widow or orphan.  If you do abuse them in any way, and they cry to me, I will certainly heed their cry.  My anger will burn, and I will kill you with the sword — your own wives will be widows and your own children fatherless. ~~ Exodus 22: 21-23
