What does Care mean?
Show concern for others, health, feelings, needs. Taking the time to do for others in making
the right decisions not to make a mistake.
We care about what others think of us. Why is this so important?
We live on this earth and look to others for approval. That is just the way our society has driven us, implemented into our brain. We care about the clothes we wear, how we design our hair.
We care about our possessions, our money, all that we cannot take with us.
I can't say that I don't care about what others think of me. If they believe me or not. Yes I do care. The difference in my care now is that what others think about me does not matter as it did once upon a time.
Does it bother me that I am not always believed, that others don't want to believe that I have changed? Yes! I know that we all have our own opinions and I can't change that. I just keep remembering:
I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. (Psalms 31:7)I will never not care about others or how others feel or think.
I have always cared for others and will continue. I am a giver by nature. It is the way the Lord made me. Sometimes my caring may have seemed like smoothering to some, or taken out of content. I wanted people to care about me, and I still do, its just my value of having them care is not what it once was. I can not change the way one thinks, however, I can change the way I think.
They may care deep down inside and are just not sure how to show it. Some may not want to show it for fear it may require another step,
Never be afraid to care. Caring is and always will be a big part of my heart. I don't know how NOT to CARE!
The Lord will take care of me. I let him. I have completely surrendered to him.
