When Jesus rose from the dead the Scripture tells us that he was very busy that first morning. He went and preached to all those who had died before, went and confronted Satan, and yet John tells us that He still took time to comfort one of his followers, Mary.
You remember Mary? She is the former prostitute who came and washed Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume and her tears. Jesus was never too busy for one hurting person.
This Easter week I’m asking God to give me eyes to see one hurting person. It might be someone I’m already scheduled to meet but it might actually be someone completely out of the blue that needs a simple word of comfort and encouragement.
If you learn nothing else from Jesus, get this: He takes time for a broken and desperate person.
