    It seems you are stretching and creating something other than the simple Word of God. Which is easily understood by all.

    'To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction' means to 'visit, speak the true gospel' to men/women who do not yet know their Loving Father in Heaven, and to 'visit, speak the true gospel' to the men/women who are 'widowed, dead in Christ, separated from the union with Christ' meaning those who are not yet prepared, or have lost their way, to meet the bridegroom, Christ. Spiritually Lost

    Amen to what William said. We HAVE and NEED to pray before reading God's Word to ask the Lord to help us read what we are reading, to gleen from His Word His goodness and mercy and His love for us. There is nothing like being with The Lord in spirit Especially in the morning first thing. Amen.

    For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
    24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
