Today you may feel completely ordinary, but what does Jesus see?
He chose his servant David, calling him from the sheep pens. He took David from tending the ewes and lambs and made him the shepherd of Jacob’s descendants–God’s own people, Israel. He cared for them with a true heart and led them with skillful hands. Psalm 78:70–72 (NLT)
One of my favorite things is to hear rags-to-riches stories... not stories of men and women who literally went from homeless to living in a mansion, but those who did so spiritually.
