When We Defend the Vulnerable, God Mends Hearts

For You From the Word

Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless.
(Psalm 82:3)

For You To Think About

dad and asian babyMaria’s Big House of Hope, a special-needs orphanage in Luoyang, Henan province, China, opened in 2009. The 6-story facility is named in loving memory of 5-year old Maria Sue Chunxi Chapman, a special-needs orphan whom Christian artist Steven and his wife Mary Beth Chapman adopted from China in 2004.

The 60,000 square foot building is a project of Show Hope and is equipped to treat all kinds of special-needs orphans, representing some of the neediest children in China. By offering these children desperately-needed surgeries and the highest level of medical care, their chances of being placed increase dramatically.

“This movement will continue long after we are gone,” say the Chapmans, “because God loves orphans. (So many) broken hearts are longing to experience the redemption that is found when we turn our attention off ourselves and love these waiting children.”

For You To Pray

Loving Father,

Show me how to turn attention off myself. Help me experience the blessing You offer when I defend vulnerable children.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
