A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families… Psalm 68:5-6 (NIV)
God has created a place for each of us. He placed us in a family. He placed us in our workplace. He placed us in our church family. While some of us may realize we are meant to connect with others, there are people who don’t know who they can rely on. The good news is that God has created a place for everyone in His family. It is up to us to help the lonely learn that God has set a place for them.
God, thank you that you have placed me in a family. Open my eyes to see those who are lonely and help them to find their place in your family. Help me to be sensitive to the needs of others and take action to make change. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
