An American Foster Father and a blind Moroccan Orphan

This article appeared in the Daily SouthTown yesterday. I found it fascinating because it perfectly captured the points of what we teach here at 113 Restoration, namely, the power and responsibility of the father to care for his family, and those he is directly responsible for, as well as how YHVH is the judge of widows and orphans. Beyond this, He commands us not to put a stumbling block in front of the blind.

He executes justice for the orphan and the widow

Deuteronomy 10:18a

Because I delivered the poor who cried for help, And the orphan who had no helper.

Job 29:12

You shall not curse a deaf man, nor place a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall revere your God; I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:14
