Throwaway People

How many times do we place people in the "too hard basket"? Their problems are too complex or may be embarrassing.

We justify our lack of support. Maybe our excuses are valid but these words are familiar to many of us - not my ministry, not worth my time or we feel inadequate. Our excuses may hold an element of truth.

We serve a God though who did not ignore but turned aside to serve the needs of others. He was not embarrassed or overwhelmed by those whom He encountered. He also empowered us to do the same.

Jesus served and loved the unlovely, the outcasts of society and those whom to this day remain unknown.

There was no ulterior motive, no paycheck, ticket to stardom nor did it further His career.

All are made in the image of our loving Father and are worthy of His love and care.
