many members, yet one body #write31days

If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. (‭I Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭15-20‬ NKJV)

Just as Paul explains the importance of diversity and unity within the body of Christ, the Church, the same idea applies to orphan care.  I firmly believe that every follower of Christ is called to orphan care but in different ways.  Even if, after careful discernment, you don't feel called to adopt, don't dismiss it.  Keep asking for revelation, keep listening for answers, look at your giftings and what your life thus far has equipped you with.

Maybe it's foster care.  Maybe it's a career in social work. Maybe it's offering babysitting or meal support for newly-widowed families. Maybe it's active funding of a particular initiative or supporting the anti-human trafficking movement. Maybe it's something in the medical or educational field.  Maybe it's involvement in policy-making.

Orphan care is so many things, together.  God is calling you in this moment to be His hands and feet somewhere, friend. Or eyes or ears....
