“I think in today’s society, we are dealing with an epidemic of fatherless homes. We’re turning everywhere else for people to be fathered.
And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25 NRSV
THE CHURCH AND THE FATHERLESS
After reflecting on their mission outreach, local church leaders should identify God’s never-ending tenderness and compassion for the fatherless while establishing the framework and mission for present-day ministry.
The discernment of the fatherless plight is close to the heart of God and provides his measurement for which spiritual impact will influence following generations.
The church needs to understand God’s heart and vision for the “fatherless” as a lens to inform ministry outreach. Fatherlessness, like death, is not easily repaired; it is often an uphill battle of a lifetime. Therefore, we can ask these three questions:
- What are God’s incarnational expectations for the church in His focus on the fatherless?
- Why does God’s “line of sight” focus on the fatherless as a priority by which the people of God are aware of their present situation?
- Why is there a mandate to focus on fatherless principles while addressing ministry?
The fatherless factor has a depth of abandonment, broken identity, and often unspeakable pain, a long-lasting effect on any society and its churches.
