Busy with Business and Babies, But Blessed!

Recently I met with a CPA who has been helping with churches, missionaries, and pastors for over 32 years.  During our conversation I learned that he and his wife in the midst of the business (his wife is also a co-partner and works in the office) have been caring for emergency foster care needs for the last several years.  They take emergency, respite babies from one-day old to 6 months old.  Over the last several years they had 28 foster children in their home.  He told me some of the stories of how the children have been abused, covered with scabies, frightened, little babies, but under their loving care they begin to respond to love and care.  This is excellent fulfillment of James 1:27, "Pure and lasting religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit [care for] orphans . . . in their distress . . . " (James 1:27 nasb).

Possibly you and I would consider doing the same – caring for little children to the glory of God.
