My son is always teaching me things about being a good friend. Every month he needs to bring a snack for his class. He loves it and feels so special when it is his choice. He gets to choose a friend to help him pass it out. The first time it was his turn he said to me, ‘Mommy, I’m going to choose Nicholas because he’s never been chosen. I want him to be chosen.’ What a sweetheart. His has a big heart of compassion and eyes that seek out those he can help. I hope he always keeps this heart.
You know God does this for you, right? When you are feeling on the outside, feeling forgotten, alone, abandoned, he will choose you. Every single time. God will look you right in the eyes and say, YOU ARE MINE. I choose you. Will you choose him?
