I love the starfish story by Loren Eiseley that points to someone throwing a starfish back into the sea after there are so many washed upon shore, they can’t save them all and is asked “Why does it matter, anyway?” and the man replies “It makes a difference for this one…..”.
Why do I love that? Because we get caught up in the numbers and the “making a huge difference” today. But that’s not what God it about. His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. Some things we are called to do may make a difference to only one person, but God cares so much for each one of us that He is willing to do whatever it takes to make the difference to you YOU! He chooses YOU!
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you”. John 15:16
Today be reminded that You are Chosen and loved by God. He cares about you as if you were the only one. Would you leave your flock of 99 sheep to go look for just 1 that is lost? A parable that Jesus used in the Bible, and does He not love you more than a shepherd his sheep!
You are Chosen.
You are Loved.
You are Redeemed.
You are Forgiven.
