Helping Other's Mothers

Happy Mother's Day.

Went to City North Bapo tonight - Guest speaker Andy Coller works for Australian Baptist Mission board and spoke on Helping Other's Mothers.

James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
The Bible speaks alot about caring for widdows and orphans. And this verse is one of few that speaks about 'true religion', other's like it also speak on social justice, caring for orphans and widdows and more actions than beliefs.

So I hope you spoilt your mother today (I did), but also today remember the mothers all over the world, and in your own church and community who lack the support they need to confidently care and provide for their children and to feel like they are leading a fullfilling and positive life. There's so much we can do for people in our own community - and there are programs we can involve ourselves in to help 3rd world mothers and widdows.

Let's get serious about a religion God accepts as pure and faultless and ease up on sounds and actions that waft up to him like a bad smell...
