James here reminds us to look after and take care of people who society often may not be cared about or even noticed.

James wants us to do more than just notice though, this is a time to show Jesus Love through us to others who may not know that Love, and to others who may notice us giving that love to people.

“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.”
