Worthy or Unworthy?

The love of Jesus is so inclusive that it knows no boundaries. At the point where we stop loving and caring, Jesus is still there—loving and caring! The question may be asked: "How does the living Christ feel today about the sinful men and women who walk our streets?" There is only one answer: He loves them! We may be righteously indignant about the things they do. We may be disgusted with their actions and their ways. We are often ready to condemn and turn away from them. But Jesus keeps on loving them! It is His unchanging nature to love and seek the lost. He said many times when He was on earth, "I have come to help the needy. The well do not need a doctor, but the sick need attention and love." We are prone to look at the needy and measure them: "Let us determine if they are worthy of our help." During all of His ministry, I do not think Jesus ever helped a "worthy" person. He only asked, "What is your need? Do you need My help?"

Verse

And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. Ephesians 3:19

Thought

I do not think Jesus ever helped a "worthy" person. He only asked, "What is your need? Do you need My help?"

Prayer

Lord, let Your criteria for help be mine, and let me not present a blind eye to those who need me most.
