We are in an age where apparently nobody seems to take the time to care. We all appear to be busy to know what is going on around us.
We had a bizarre accident in our home city, which involved a train colliding with a truck. The amazing thing there was time to stop the train hitting the truck, but everybody must of thought somebody else was doing something about it.
The truck driver was advised to stand clear but still stood too close to the collision and lost his leg through shrapnel flying around.
Take the time to care, always be looking for ways to help to avoid, circumstances that can be avoided.
God cares 2 Kings 4 verse 8 to 37. Key verse 36 “Then Elisha summoned Gehazi. “Call the child’s mother!’ he said. And when she came in, Elisha said, “Here, take your son!”
God cares for hurting people. Elisha’s prayer and method of raising the dead boy show God’s personal care for hurting people. We must express genuine concern for others as we carry God’s message to them. Only then will we faithfully represent our compassionate Father in heaven.
Jesus demonstrates His care. John 11 verse 35 “then Jesus wept.”
John stresses that we have a God who cares. This would be a contrast with the Greek concept of God that was popular in that day. This popular Greek opinion of God was a God with no emotion and no messy involvement with humans. Here in John’s Gospel we see many of Jesus’ emotions; compassion, indignation, sorrow, even frustration. when Jesus saw the weeping and the wailing, he too wept openly. Perhaps he empathized with their grief, or perhaps he was troubled at their unbelief. In either case, Jesus showed that He cares enough for us to weep with us in our sorrow.
Our Lord and our Friend does care, he understands emotions and feeling , for He experienced them. If we are honest, and don’t try to hide anything from Him. Our Loving Lord and Friend cares.
Remember we are His hand and feet, be His representative who care in a dying world.
