I thought this verse from James was a good complement to the verses from my February 25th post. I highly recommend reading the whole chapter as the rest of it goes well with the verses in my March 4th post. Enjoy!
James 1:27 (NIV)
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.
Devin and I talk about his verse a lot. He likes to point out that "keeping oneself from being polluted by the world" is just as important as "caring for the orphan and widow." This is something our generation tends to forget. I blogged about it some in my post, Deceived by Social Justice".
