He Careth For You

So great is the loving concern of God for His people, and so great is God’s complete and utter disdain for the wicked, that He takes more notice in His word of Jacob’s flocks than all the splendour of Greece. He tells us that Mary wrought a good work on His Son, but refuses to call attention to the mighty works of worldly men. He delights Himself in calling our attention to the fact that Mary sat at Jesus’ feet to hear His word and learn of Him, but derides all the impressive learning of the Jewish rabbis who sat at the feet of Gamaliel. He notes the speech impediment of Moses, but passes by all the orations of the philosophers. He calls our attention to two mites given by the poor widow, but says nothing praiseworthy of the sacrifices of the wealthy. He goes to great length telling us the ages of Seth’s descendants, but seems to hurry by the lineage of Cain as if the very mention of his children left a bad taste in His mouth. He takes delight in noticing the strange diet of John the Baptist, but breathes not a word concerning the royal diet of Herod. He counts the hairs on the heads of His saints, but refuses to calculate the riches of Rome. He observes the small kindness of Dorcas in making coats for the poor widows, but says nothing in praise of the exploits of the Caesars. The name of Lazarus is had in everlasting remembrance, but the unbelieving, rich man who fared sumptuously every day—who is he? He even calls our attention to the colour of Lydia’s fabric—a seemingly insignificant detail—but He refuses to describe the royal attire of Pontius Pilate! Oh, children of God, cast all your care upon Him, for he careth for you more than you can possibly imagine!
