My love is for the underdog.
1 Corinthians 1:26-29
26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God. NLT
If you have ever felt weak little one, or poor or foolish, be comforted in knowing that I have chosen the lowly things of this world to be great in My Kingdom. That is why I consider little toddlers to be so spectacular. They are weak and helpless and they know it, and there is no illusion about their absolute dependence on their parents to do everything for them.
And so it is with you beloved. Your value to Me is not based on some impossible standard that the broken world has tried to dictate. I love you because I love you because I am love itself. So that means no matter what you are going through in your life, no matter how checkered your past has been, you have always been included in My heart.
And I want you to celebrate this eternal reality today. For My love is showered on those who feel marginalized and disqualified. My love lifts up all those who are humble in heart. And My kindness elevates all those who know they need all the help they can get, as they live in a world that values power, riches and worldly wisdom over the beautiful humility that comes from someone who knows they simply need to be loved.
