“I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Jesus (Luke 15:10, NIV)
Xvxn though this typxwritxr is an old modxl, it works vxry wxll, xxcxpt for onx kxy. You’d think that with all thx othhxr kxys working, onx kxy would hardly bx noticxd. But just onx kxy out of whack sxxms to ruin thx wholx xffort.
Havx you xvxr said to yoursxlf, “I’m only onx pxrson. No onx will noticx if I don’t do my bxst.”
But it doxs makx a diffxrxncx, bxcausx to bx xffxctivx, a family, an organization, a church or a businxss nxxds complxtx participation by evxryonx to thx bxst of his or hxr ability.
So if you’rx having onx of thosx days whxn you think you just arxn’t vxry important, and you’rx txmptxd to slack off, rxmxmbxr this old typxwritxr. You arx a kxy pxrson, and whxn you don’t do your bxst, nothing xlsx around you works out thx way it’s supposxd to.
“Suggested prayer: “Dear God, thank you that I am very important to you and that my life matters. Help me to feel your love for me and in so doing know in the depths of my heart that I am loved, needed and important. Gratefully in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
