God Children.

"For thus says the Lord, To the eunuchs* who keep my my sabbaths, who choose the things that please me and hold fast my covenant, I will give in my house and within my walls a monument and a name better than sons and daughters, I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off."  Isaiah 56:4.5 (NRSV)

This refers to the practice of God adopting unmarried men to His service.

Everyone was to them like children.

Because God is Father of all.

And His servants foster everyone.

(*Eunuchs referred to any men who did not marry.)
