Humans throughout the ages have created hierarchy’s in the name of social position. As a college student working at a state capitol I would see people coming in with very expensive clothing and an air of pride. The same day I would see the homeless searching through trash cans on the grounds trying to find food. The contrast to this rural girl was startling.
God’s viewpoint of man in contrast is totally different then that of human kind. He takes the things the world sees as foolish and makes corner stones of his legacy. God is no respecter of a persons position in life. He instead looks at each and every heart. He sees the good, the bad and the ugly.
He transforms the crushed in spirit and calls them his own. Humanity chases after power, fame, indulgence, control, material gain, getting the advantage, the best vacation, and status. God instead values the invisible things like love, joy, service, humility, kindness and peace. He is our beginning and end. So we either listen to the crowds for a short exclamation in life singing in our own parade or we keep our eyes on building up something that lasts for eternity. There are no big people or small people in God’s equation just children who love him and who are loved by him.
“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
