One of my best friends shared his mantra for the New Year with me. Each day, he strives to go above and beyond for someone else. A few days ago, an older woman was the beneficiary of his kindness. He offered to carry her luggage from a flight they shared. In other words, he treated her like a V.I.P. (very important person), sacrificing himself to make her feel special.
My friend’s gesture of kindness made me think about how Jesus treats us. He’s never too busy or preoccupied to stop and help us. The woman with the issue of blood is a witness. Jesus treated her so special that He stopped what He was doing to help her. He could have kept moving toward Jairus’ house, but He paused to show her how much He cared.
I’m thankful that God gives us the V.I.P. treatment. Every morning when you open your eyes, every breath you take, and every heartbeat you enjoy is a sign of how special He thinks you are. So, live each day like a V.I.P. If no one else thinks you are, God certainly does!
Thought to Consider:
How does God treat you like a V.I.P.?
