A true measure of people only God Knows

Luke 8:2 ~ along with some women

Imagine, the feeling of being special felt for the first time by these women and feeling special by not just anyone, but Jesus!!! Isn't that true with us? When we finally realize that we are special it is because of Jesus? Up until that moment we are flawed, imperfect, too big, too small, too short, too tall, wrong color hair...the list could go on and on until we finally get we matter to Jesus!

Jesus let these women be a part of His ministry. They traveled and supported Him and others saw this acknowledgement in public. No longer were they on the edges of a room just overhearing a detail here or there from the Word they were able to sit at His feet and learn. So are we!

Jesus treated them different and finally they realized that God measures us differently than other human beings! He loves us! He was their friend and He wanted to save their souls! Wow!!!!

Today, remember how God measures you and not those around you that might hurt your feelings and they don't even realize it!!! Look to Jesus for your measure of how much you matter ~ HE DIED on the CROSS FOR YOU AND ME ~ WE MATTER!

Sweet Blessings,

Debbie, how can I forget how much I matter when I remember that Jesus died for me? Thanks for reminding us today.
