What the World Doesn’t Understand – Angelina is Walking

When Angelina came home five years ago, we weren’t sure she would ever walk. Look at her today! She is walking on her own! Lina is one of the many orphans who deserve to be in a family. Caring for the orphan means sacrifice. You may pour yourself out, but the joy an orphan brings to your life will change and bless you immeasurably.

Though this is opposite from what the word tells us. But 1 Corinthians 2:14 says: “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” While the world may not understand why one would sacrifice their lives for a special-needs orphan, who may never “achieve” anything…as Christians, this is the heart of the Gospel. Christ died for us, while we were yet sinners. (Romans 5:8).

What role does God want you to play in the life of the orphan? If we search His word, He will reveal Himself. His heart for the orphan is written throughout Scripture.
