Walking with God—Do not afflict the widow
God ordered not to afflict widows in Exodus 21. So, I have been thinking about its meaning. Widows are regarded minority in society because they are exposed to social risks such as making love and security.
Also, in some way, widows could be sidelined by the main medium due to their low influence in society. So, the social system might be not favorable to them in terms of social security and financial support.
In my case, I feel full empathy for widows because my mom lost her husband in her Forties. After that, my family faced financial difficulties, and my mother did not receive social security support.
In conclusion, I can feel God’s plan and protection for the widow in this chapter. I felt we need to protect and care for the widows around us as we love God.
