“I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.” (Psalm 142:4)
This plaintive cry of the psalmist, expresses both great desire and despair. He wanted someone to care about him and his soul. And he despaired that anyone did care. Haven’t we all at one time or another felt this way? What hopelessness and what helplessness, when we feel that no one cares for us!
But someone does. No matter who we might be, or wherever we may be found, there are those who care for us. First, our great God cares for us. The Bile tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” Secondly, our Lord Jesus Christ cares for us. He willingly went to Calvary and died for us that we might live with Him in glory. As the song states: “Does Jesus care? Oh, yes, He cares!” The song writer had a good understanding of Biblical truth.
Finally, your friends and relatives care for you. The loving concern of a Christian wife, or parent, or child, makes known through many ways, that you are loved. If we only knew the full story, we would marvel at the number of people who really care.
