In our Bible verses today, Paul talked to Timothy about taking care of widows — women whose husbands have died.
Recently I studied these verses. I learned that the church is responsible to take care of older widows who need help. I also learned that children should help take care of their mother if she is a widow.
These verses really touched my heart because my mother is a widow now. I am her only child. So I am responsible to help take care of her. Paul also says that as Christians, we should take care of our families. “Most important, they should take care of their own family. If they do not do that, then they do not accept what we believe. They are worse than someone who does not even believe in God” (verse 8b).
I encourage you to pay attention to Paul’s words in our Bible verses today. God will bless you as you serve Him by helping others.
