Have you ever been disrespected, mistreated or misunderstood? I know I have and sometimes; all in one day! I’d love to be that person who doesn’t care and keeps smiling at life anyway. (At least they’re smiling on the outside) It’d be awesome to really not care about things; or would it?
What if I didn’t care?
If I didn’t care I'd be doing life my way.
Doing things I want to do and how I want to do them.
If I didn’t care, l'd say whatever I want, with any tone I choose.
Not caring would set me free from anyone’s approval, the need for acceptance,
and wanting to make anyone happy or feel appreciated. I wouldn’t have to open
the door for anybody, use my manners, or give anyone precedence. I’d never give
to the needy, be kind and loving, render mercy and grace or forgive. If I didn’t care,
I’d be selfishly living without thought or regard for anyone else.
Honestly, that sounds like a very sad and lonely life. It’s also opposite from the way Jesus calls us to live. Jesus says, “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.” (John 13:34)
I find it difficult to love if I don’t care. I’m choosing to keep on keeping on. I’m going to care and love people like Jesus.
What matters is, I do care. And what matters more is Jesus cares!
"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
