#Bible365 – The Fatherless and Widow

Last September, The Sofa started reading the Soul Survivor Bible in a Year – Bible reading plan. Well… I have something to confess.

I’m keeping up with it as well as an asthmatic ant with heavy shopping keeps up with a particularly speedy thing. Mostly because I’m rubbish at this sort of thing, but also because I get distracted as well.

I get distracted when I notice random things. Such as the phrase “The Fatherless and the Widows”, and how they seem to have special mention on a regular basis, such as the start of Jeremiah Chapter 7:

“‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you people of Judah who come through these gates to worship the Lord. 3 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place. 4 Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord!”5 If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, 6 if you do not oppress the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, 7 then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your ancestors for ever and ever.

Looking after the fatherless and widow seems to be a theme that is returned to on a regular basis. Which leads me nicely to my two questions:

  • Does anyone know how many times the Bible refers to The Fatherless or Widow, or similar reading?
  • Why dont we hear more about looking after The Fatherless or Widow in churches?
