Does Jesus Care?

In Luke 10, we read the story of two sisters—Mary and Martha. When Jesus came to their home, Martha went on her way preparing everything to make the best welcome for Jesus while Mary chose to sit still at His feet.

In verse 40 we read that while Martha was too busy serving, she asked Jesus “Lord, do You not care…?”

How many times have we questioned God whether or not He cares? I was comforted tonight when I was reminded that no matter how much we doubt Him, He still cares. And there is nothing we could do to make loves us more or less. Just as He cares for the sparrows how much for us, are we not more valuable than they? (Matthew 6)

“God isn’t threatened by our doubts and questions, our fears or even our frustrations. He wants us to trust His love enough to tell Him what we are thinking and feeling.”

Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Heart in A Martha World

He does care! And He’s waiting for us to tell Him everything and cast on Him all that causes us to become anxious.

The King and Creator of the universe cares for you — Jesus dying on the cross was evidence enough of His great unfaltering love. So stop worrying. He is on your side!


Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song,
As the burdens press, and the cares distress,
And the way grows weary and long?

Oh, yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
As the daylight fades into deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near?

Does Jesus care when I’ve tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong;
When for my deep grief there is no relief,
Though my tears flow all the night long?

Does Jesus care when I’ve said “goodbye”
To the dearest on earth to me,
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks—
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?
