Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. James 1:27
In the first century widows and orphans were getting very little financial support. If their family could not take care of them, they had to beg, sell themselves into slavery or die of starvation. By ensuring these disenfranchised people, the congregation of God did not stop at words, but putting words into action. By giving without expecting anything in return, they showed what “serving others” means. Jesus expected this of all true believers. Matthew 25:35
