There are many people in this world who feel inferior and worthless. The world looks down upon them and labels them as slow, stupid, childish, unfit for society. As a result, these poor souls feel lonely and wonder if they do make a difference. Some of them use the Internet to vent their anger, or to do very foolish things to get the attention they so crave for. They do end up getting what they are searching for but the attention is far from flattering: they are laughed at, ridiculed, taken advantage of, and called cruel names.
These mentally challenged folks are hurting. Those who don’t understand make sport of their disabilities, thinking that it’s funny to watch them react in ways that are not wholesome to their well-being. Some of the mockers will say that the troubles that have come upon these individuals was brought on by themselves. Even if that is true, it still does not give anyone the right to put them down and make them feel like dirt.
They are made in the image of God, and Jesus also died for them on the cross. No one is inferior or worthless in the eyes of God. They need to know that they are special and have a part to play in God’s plan.
Let’s pray and ask Jesus to heal these broken souls with His everlasting love. And while we’re praying for them, let’s also ask His Majesty how we can reach out to the outcasts in our neighborhood.
A Lightbearer is called to show love and compassion toward everyone, even the least of all.
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.” Matthew 25:40 KJV.
