Does Anybody Care


I think I could safely say that question has probably come from everyone’s mouth or mind at one time or other in their lifetime. Sad to say, the truth be known, the words “I care” may be spoken to us in stormy circumstances of our lives but are not truthfully lived out. Disappointing, but true. Peter wrote to the Jewish believers who were struggling in the midst of persecution. He encouraged them to conduct themselves in such a way that their character and conduct would be above reproach as they represented Christ. Peter left them with a message they could count on: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for HE CARES FOR YOU (I Peter 5:5b-7 NKJV, emphasis mine). Tuck that message deep in your heart! It will be with you everywhere you go.
