Seeking God: The forgotten people

Read: Psalm 10:12-17, Luke 5:31-32

Christ: God will not fail to call everyone to account. This is why I came, to help you who are lost in the tangled web of your own sins. I offer the free gift of exoneration to the wicked as well as the helpless, and it is my dearest wish that ALL would choose to come to me. However, there are some who will exercise their free right to reject my love. For those people, I’m telling you that it may seem like they are getting away easy now, but they will not escape justice.

I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.”

Think: If Jesus does not choose who comes to him, neither should I.   A stranger at the checkout counter is just as deserving of my love as are my best friends. How can I reach out in love to someone new today? Who in my life is being forgotten by me?

Pray: Dear Lord, Let me go about my day today, looking for the people around me whom I would ordinarily ignore and forget. There are more of these than I care to acknowledge, but I desire to model Jesus. Help me to keep my heart open to ALL the souls you have put in my path. Amen.
