GOD DOES CARE
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
Several years ago, one of my neighbor’s grandsons died. When I saw my neighbor outside, I told him how sorry I was and that I was praying for him. He replied “Don’t pray for me because God is not a loving God or He wouldn’t have let my grandson die.” That is not a true statement. God does care about us.
God proved that He cares about us and loves us when He gave His beloved Son to die on the cross and pay the penalty for our sins. God didn’t just look down and decide to give Jesus to die for us; He opened His heart of compassion and love to us. I believe when we hurt and cry that God cries with us.
Heavenly Father, thank You for being a tender compassionate and loving Father Who really cares about us. Thank You for the many times You have comforted and encouraged me. I pray for all who are hurting. Please comfort and encourage them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
