Some of you saw my post on facebook about my 4 year old’s miraculous healing (see bottom of page for pics and facebook post). Her faith is huge! God loves her so much! Make no mistake he loves you so much too . . .
Matthew 18:10 “See that you do not despise [devalue, de-esteem, dishonor] one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”
This is not a dire and foreboding statement like most people think – it is directly followed by the parable of the lost sheep where Jesus shows the incredible worth of every individual. It is heart expanding. Our Father has a huge heart for all of his children. He doesn’t want one wandering off.
The angels are looking at Him taking on His heart – they’re passionate like our Father about the preservation of the helpless. Not just preservation of their eternity, but the preservation of their best life now, since the word in verse 14 translated they should not perish is more correctly that they should not be crushed or ruined.
Truth . . .
We are God’s little ones too, don’t devalue or de-esteem yourself, God wants to do miracles through you.
If we’re looking at our father’s face then we know the value of those around us.
