How can the church respond to the needs of vulnerable children in every nation of the world? (March 12, 2024, Evangelical Focus)

A world without orphans is the value of the eternity, and values need to be grounded there. In addition, Christians should build an instinct of perspective, rather than expectancy.

And also, as spiritual workers among vulnerable children, there is a need to build a culture instead of just making strategies.

The case is going forward almost as if the Gaza war were not preceded by, and in retaliation for, an attack that itself resembled genocide. Israel’s defenders, including its legal team at the ICJ, have complained that the proceedings tell only half the story, and that a full assessment of the facts would demand consideration of Hamas’s actions, too.
