God does not forget the weak, the insignificant or the poor.
In fact, these are only things that we humans look at – they are exterior to our souls and hearts; they are circumstantial, not character traits.
Throughout the Bible, God consistently shows us that it is our hearts that matter, not our physical strength or wealth or abilities. Think about when he was he chose David as Saul’s successor in 1 Samuel 16. Or even when he decided that the little town of Bethlehem would have the honour of being where his Son was born….
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel…”
Millions of refugees and migrants in our world are invisible to our eyes.
But not to God.
God created them – just as he created you and me. He knows them better than they know themselves; he knows everything they have done, everything that they have endured and everything that will happen to them.
Today, STOP and DO two things;
- Do some research into the situation of refugees in your country and town.
How many are there? What happens to them? Is it possible you can help in some way?
- Use trustworthy news sites or international organisations and learn five facts about the refugee crisis – tell someone!
