November is Adoption month and Kansas is focusing on the task of adoptiong 995 children who are in need of a “forever home.” Culture Shield is alerting churches to go to the DCF website for more information as to how your church can help.
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. James 1:27
Let’s focus on the last part of that verse, . . .”keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” How do we keep from doing that? Of course there are many ways to start but I believe one great way to start would be to turn off our televisions. Now, I’m not suggesting that we never watch television, but what I am challenging myself and my family to do is pick up a good book instead. Start with one night a week or try to go Monday through Friday without watching “mindless” T.V..
Three books we are suggesting this month are America the Beautiful by Dr. Ben Carson, 40 Days Toward a More Godly Nation by Neil Mammen, and Every Man a Warrior series by Lonnie Berger.
Let’s dump the inbox and reboot.
