They Matter

Something to keep in mind.  We naturally fall into just seeing faces, not truly caring about the person....but every one of those people matters tremendously to Jesus!  

We see people everyday. To us they are just normal people going on with their day just like everyone else. When we go shopping we see people and we often don't even acknowledge their existence. We don't really care about them because we don't know them. They're just everyday people going on with their life. And we just go on with ours. But everyone in this whole universe matters to God. Everyone is special to him. He watches them through their life. And he cares. 

Everyone we see is fighting some kind of war in their life. We're all going through something in our lives. But some of us have a captain to get us through the battles of life (God) while others have none to protect them from the darts of this world and the devil.

You see everyone matters.

The orphan in Africa.
The homeless man on the side of the street.
The poor widow.
The wounded soldier.
The handicapped elderly women.

They matter. Maybe they don't matter to the normal person who walks by and sees them but they matter to God.

And they should matter to us too.

Compassion-love-can go a long way. I know first-hand that it does! Just recently I was just grocery shopping with my mom and a sweet little old lady came up to me and told me she loved my smile and that I should never stop smiling. That just made my day! That little old lady might not have realized what she said but it meant so much to me. We must realize that there are so many people around us who need out encouragement. At my church we have a bus ministry and it just breaks my heart to see all of the little kids who come from such difficult homes...but we can help them! We must tell them that Jesus loves them...and we must love them like Jesus loves us.

Be compassionate. Always be looking for someone who needs encouragement. 

Our number one goal in life should be to lift up others and lead them to Jesus. 

People are always watching you. Your friends, your neighbors, your family...and even your enemies.
I've heard so many stories about people who got saved because they had wronged someone but the person wronged was a Christian and instead of repaying a wrong for a wrong responded in kindness. Be a good testimony for Christ!
 
You can tell a better testimony with the way you live than with what you say. 

Try to make someone feel like they matter today. Jesus loves the whole world. And as Christians we must follow his great example. You can never love someone too much. Next time you see someone who looks down and out try to comfort them!

 Mathew 14:14-  And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

 1Thes 5:11 - Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.



Keep shining bright

  1. This is awesome Brittney. I personally know how good it is for a complete stranger to say something kind, it really makes a difference in the complemented/encouraged persons day. :)
