“We have become orphans, fatherless…” Lamentations 5:3
If we do not know God as our Heavenly Father, can we say we are fatherless? Another way I form this question in my mind is what “sonship” is eternal? Could it be that much of what we are seeing in our world today comes from an orphan like mindset? An adopted child has a family, relationship and a home. They do nothing to be adopted, only accept the invitation. All are invited, so why do some remain as orphans? Perhaps it is because we do not have a true understanding of grace. Makes me wonder if believers began to live more gracious, would more orphans come home?
