Maybe because I’m thinking of the little boy humiliated in Mexico, I am reminded of God’s word that says no heart can know the heartache of another. There’s a link to the story in Related Articles . I have decided that it is not my calling to change the world. However, what if everyone’s heartache feels to them like that little boy’s?
My calling is to tell the good news everywhere I can. What is the good news? It is that God does care about that boy, but does not promise to “fix” his world other than to feed and clothe him, if he will seek the kingdom of God first, Matthew 6:33. God does promise to give us a home with Him in Heaven, John 14:2, if we believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord, Romans 10:9. The good news is that there is a Heaven – a place with no more tears, Isaiah 25:8, in the presence of God, Psalm 84:10.
I believe that heart ache is the same for all of us, its just we can’t feel how someone else feels. Only God knows what bends instead of breaks, 1 Corinthians 10:13. I used the NASB throughout this post but Biblegateway offers the option of adding a parallel. As archaeologists find earlier manuscripts, it is probably a good idea to keep up with newer versions and always pray and ask God to reveal Himself to you. He really is a rewarder of those who seek Him, Hebrews 11:6.
