John Flanagan: This story is so heartwarming. Without mentioning the role of religious conviction in the decision to take these children into a good and loving home, the Grimes' family demonstrated the abounding love of God. Selfless acts of kindness are worth more than a thousand sermons. There is one of numerous favorite verses of scripture which I feel applies to this story: From the epistle of James: chapter 1 vs 27: " Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this; To visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." We can speak all day about our Christian faith, but without some evidence, some fruit, some indication that our faith is real, we have a worthless witness or testament. Acts as the one shown by the Grimes' family reflect a practical and real Christianity, and I salute them.
