"What is man that You should be mindful of him?" Hebrews 2:5
Worldometers claims that the current population of the world today is 7.4 billion with the Philippines contributing 103 million to that number. How can we say then that God minds each one of us, loves each one as if there is only one of us to love? Does He really?
Beth Moore, a preacher I like to listen to, tells a story about when she was in a crowded airport hall, and a stewardess pushed in a man in a wheelchair. His hair was long and scraggly, and he was just a sight that everyone followed their progress. Beth heard God say that He wanted her to brush his hair. She was quite adamant at first and didn't want to obey, but God was persistent. So eventually she went over and asked the man in a whisper if she could have the honor of brushing his hair. He couldn't hear very well so she had to repeat her question several times until the whole hall could hear, and he said yes. She had to find his hair brush in his bag because she didn't have one. It took some time before all the tangles of his matted hair became smooth. Then she got up, kneeled down in front of him, saw his tears, and asked, "Sir, do you know Jesus?"
"Yes I do. My bride said I would have to know Jesus before she'd marry me so I read the Bible and I got to know Jesus. But I've been in the hospital a long time and now I'm going home to my bride, and I thought that I must look a terrible mess and was feeling sad because I couldn't brush my hair by myself. Thank you so much. Thank you." By this time a lot of people, including the stewardess had tears running down their faces.
Yes, God cares. He cares about what we care about. It's mind boggling to think that God would care about one man in 7.4 billion people, that He sent Beth to untangle his hair so he would feel he was presentable to see his bride.
Lord, I know You care about me. I don't want to take for granted all the times You take care of me!
