It's Not All About You

Many times I have been told...It's not all about you. Do people think we really don't know that? It's usually pretty clear that there are other people who are far more important than you. But...wouldn't you really like it if just one time it was all about you?! You know you would. On a scale of one to ten where do you think you usually rank in everyone else's life? Maybe...15? I'm sure you aren't alone in feeling that way. Most of us feel like that at least some of the time. If this sounds like you there's some good news out there for you...

There's someone's list you're on that always thinks of you as number "1". No one else means more to Him and no one else is above you. To God you are always at the top...the center of His attention...the "apple" of His eye!

Deuteronomy 32:10

“He found him in a desert land
      And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness;
      He encircled him, He instructed him,
      He kept him as the apple of His eye."

In the original Hebrew apple is really, pupil of the eye. So pretty much if we are the center of His eye we must be the center of His attention. First in His thoughts. That's a great place to be. Who really cares if we don't make other top 10 lists. Gods is all that really matters anyway!

Then how about the verse that says He knows how much hair you have!

Matthew 10:30

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Wow! Who would have thought hair matters so much? Too God...everything about us matters.

Wherever you are today...whatever problems you're having...whether you think no one really cares or not...GOD does.You're at the top of His list. Number one!! Share His love with someone else today that needs to know how much He cares. There's always someone else that's having a worse day than you. Lift them up by sharing with them how much God loves them!
