In whose eyes and by whose standards are we judged a misfit? It seems to me that we are all misfits in someone else’s eyes. There once was a family of brothers, whose daddy died young. Their mother, although a career woman, had leaned on her husband tremendously, but she was able to go on by the grace of God, and one young son who, unbeknownst to him, she had given her reigns of leadership to; to lead her, not the family!

Choosing God is an every minute, every day option that we must choose, if we want to be guided by His Holy Spirit within us. When we put God second in our day to day events, it’s hard to hear from Him, because all the other people in our lives press in on us, and take our time away from Him; and away from prayer.

A woman went to the butcher shop to buy a chicken for the Sunday meal. The butcher had only one scrawny chicken left. He put it on the scale. “Three pounds,” he said. “That’s too scrawny; don’t you have something bigger?” she asked. He pretended to rummage around, and then put the same chicken back on the scale.

Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were yet sinners. While we didn’t love God, nor did we regard Him. While we lived sinful, selfish lives. While we snubbed our nose at God and His Holy Word - He loved us, and gave His Son for us.

Who doesn’t want to be loved? You know, some people don’t know how to be loved? Some of us, for some reason, don’t know how to handle closeness.
