Scripture for this message:
God is glorified when we, as his people, care for orphans.
God called out the Israelites to reveal to the earth who He is. The commandments He gives to Israel reveals the character and attributes of God.
Concerning the sojourner and widows, God commands Israel to care for them by not taking what is theirs and not to pervert justice toward them. God also instructs them to leave behind things that rightfully belong to them, and often were their source of income and well-being, for those in need. (Deut. 24:17-22)
God uses adoption as an illustration of what God has done for us. (Gal. 4:3-5, Eph. 1:3-10)
