Does God really care? Of course, we know He cares about our salvation, but does he care about all the “little things”? Does he care that I bit my tongue while eating an apple this morning, or that I got cut off in traffic? Does he care that my kid is failing Spanish, or that I was ugly to my spouse?
With all the big things happening in the world today, does God really care about my little day to day trials? If we have these questions, doubts, and concerns, so do our kids.
Jesus knew this thought when he walked the earth and I wonder if he ever had the same thought?
In Luke 12:7, Jesus says, “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.” In other words, God cares so much about us, he knows how many hairs are on our heads at any one moment! He knows and cares about our big things and our small things.
Knowing (AND BELIEVING) God cares about us because we are His makes a difference in how we live our lives. Consider this question as a family. Ask your kids… what difference does it make to know that God cares?
