HE COULDN'T CARE MORE

 
"So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need." —Hebrews 4:16
 

We see others and ourselves beset with problems, which don't get better but get worse. Then we wonder whether God cares.

We pray, and our prayers are not answered as we hoped. In fact, things often get worse after we pray. If God is blessing us, it seems impossible to recognize this.

We see people falling on the ice, suffering in pain, shivering in the cold, treated unjustly, and consumed with fear. Then we wonder again whether God cares.

The truth is: GOD CARES. He even became a human being to suffer with us. The crucified Christ communicates to even the most broken and confused people that God cares about each one of them (1 Pt 5:7). "We do not have a High Priest Who is unable to sympathize with our weakness" (Heb 4:15). God cares about each one of us more than we care about ourselves. He cares about us more than do those who love us most. God cannot care about us more than He already does. He cares about us and loves us perfectly, infinitely, unconditionally, sacrificially, and eternally. "So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need" (Heb 4:16).

 
Prayer: Abba, by faith I have supreme confidence in Your love.
Promise: "Jesus said to them, 'People who are healthy do not need a doctor; sick people do. I have come to call sinners, not the righteous." —Mk 2:17, our transl.
Praise: St. Hilary chose Christianity through a long, thoughtful process of study.
