Caring is sharing :]
Today I'm going to be talking about caring. Yes, I know we've heard it before. You need to care about everyone, this person that one. But the question I want to ask today, are we actually doing so in reality? I'd like you to turn to John 10:14-16. (Someone reads or something). ""I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me- just as I know my Father and my Father knows me- and I lay down my life for my sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too shall listen to my voice, and there will be one flock and one shepherd."

I think this verse is absolutely amazing. In this verse, you can clearly see how much Jesus cares for his children. Like he said, he would "lay down his life for his sheep." To know someone who would care so much about you to actually do that, well that would probably be one of the best things you could experience. In fact, if you look the word "care" up in the dictionary, you would find something similar to this "to show concern for." And that's exactly what God is doing each and every day of our lives, each and every moment. Not only does he care about us who already know and love him, but when he says "I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen, I must bring them also," he means he cares for the ones who've turned their back on him, who don't know him. That's how awesome our God is. He cares for those who don't even know him. And he wants them to know him. So how are they going to? Well you see that's when we come in. This addresses my question earlier. We know we should care about everyone, but are we really doing so? I don't mean just for your loved ones, the people you already know. Well, of course you have to care about them. I mean about the lonely homeless man on the street, the single mother who needs somewhere to go. What about them? You see there are so many people who are in need for someone to just care, to show that they really do matter to...
