Genesis 38 – Tamar, twice-widowed. Why do we care about this Canaanite woman? Where are the heroes? In this story there is no hero. Tamar acted nobly to continue the name of the family. God still used these people. God still had His plan in this story. Tamar is named in Christ’s genealogy.
Care for the people who cannot care for themselves. That’s the heart of true believers.
Pure Religion and God’s Care: James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.“
