Genesis 35:1-29; Psalms 7:1-8:9; Matthew 19:16-20:16

And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. Luke 7:15

The Lord Jesus and a large crowd that was following him had come upon another large gathering—a funeral procession. It was for a young man who had been the only son of his widowed mother. The Lord interrupted the funeral and raised him back to life! He could have just gone on his way then, but instead He o?ered a simple, yet profound gesture: “he delivered him to his mother.” In the midst of all those people, Jesus acknowledged this woman. Do you feel lost in the crowd? Be encouraged: even among the billions, the Lord knows and loves you personally. —Lynn Shatford

When the days are weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Saviour cares. —Frank E. Graeff
