Kitchen Table Devotional
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
Real faith looks like real love. Pure and undefiled religion (worship) doesn’t let what others have done determine what we will do. Real faith looks like real love for others and from God. We believe God for the healing of our flesh, but we don’t always look for the healing of our friendships. That’s just as important and without that healing, we will live hurt. And hurt people hurt people. Love for God, self, and others is pure worship of God. That kind of love will keep you from this kind of life that we are surrounded by in this fallen world. This kind of faith for that kind of love will keep us from those kinds of things that stain the heart and mind of man. Living through the trials of life will require living in the love of God every moment of the way.
