Does Jesus Care about Little Things?

Which of this list would  You consider little?


     1. Your cat or dog is losing weight and you don't have money to take her to the vet.

     2. You AREN'T losing weight, even though you've cut back on sweets and second helpings.

     3. Your blog stats have dropped in the last month.

Would you pray for any or all of the above? Why or why not?

One of my goals in writing Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top was to help friends overcome the erroneous idea that God only cares about big things in our lives. Yet, what is big to God? And what is little to God? 
Since He cared enough to send Jesus to die in our place and purchase us for God's family with His sinless blood,  how much more will He care for us now that we are in His family? Surely everything that concerns us, also touches His father's heart.

Never think that the trifles in your life are unimportant to the Lord. He is always thinking about you, and wants to help you with every detail of your life. You are His child, and He cares for you. Bring Him ALL your concerns, not just the ones you think are big.

Today my friend Janette Dolores has a lovely review of Two Scoops on her blog. I'd be delighted for you to pop over there and say 'howdy!'

Have a lovely weekend,

  5. I used to think that I was bothering God with any request that didn't involve something major. And then I read passages instructing us to place all of our worries in God, and that the Lord will heal the brokenhearted. That made me question who I was to decide what was major or minor.

    Thank you for the shout out about my blog! I thought Two Scoops was an inspiring read, and it's my pleasure to help spread the word about it.

    Blessings to you and yours...

  6. Ooh! Good question!
    #1. Absolutely, because "the righteous man cares for his animals" according to Proverbs.
    #2. I think I'd pray for wisdom to know what I needed to change in my diet or exercise habits.
    #3. Probably not. I guess I would assume I either wasn't blogging enough, wasn't blogging WELL enough, or just wasn't doing what I needed to be doing.
    Interesting, how those fall.
