God cares. We must care

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

We are not alone.  God cares for us more than we will ever know.  When we experience the care God has for us, we will think different and respond to others in different ways.  His care for us should lead us to care for others.

To care is to step up and do something.  It is counter culture and against the flow or what most people do to care for people when there is no thought of getting anything in return.  But that is what the love of God looks like.  He loves us when we don’t deserve His love.

The definition of the word “care” means to provide for, to attach value, to meet a need.  God cares for us.  He cares for all people even when someone does not acknowledge His care.

so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Now it is our turn.  Because God cares for us we can care for others.  To care, once again, is to meet a need and to show someone how much value they really have.

May we do something that gets us almost nothing in return.  Care for someone, do something for someone that can never repay you.  To care really is to give someone a picture of who our God is.

God cares for us!  Go and do the same…
