John Sowers discusses how we should respond to the Fatherless.
He says, “As Christ followers, what is our response to the fatherless story? How do we respond to this with the heart of the One who says, ‘Father, He is father to the fatherless.’ You see this is a theological issue. It’s not just a social issue that the government has to take care of kids, because God Himself calls Himself Father to the fatherless. Our response is that we have to be reconcilers—that we have to enter the shame and suffering of a generation. We have to step into their lives with the same intimacy in which Christ stepped into ours at the incarnation.”
