Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: August 30, 2016

The downturns of life can create such a sad state of affairs that we wonder if God still wants us….  [In the story of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31),] Lazarus [winds up needing] nothing.  The…rich man needs everything.  He loses the lap of luxury and Lazarus discovers the lap of Abraham.

You may be [a Lazarus].  Not begging for bread, but struggling to buy some.  Not sleeping on streets, but on the floor, perhaps?  In your car sometimes?  On a couch often?  Does God have a place for people in your place?…  God takes you however he finds you.  No need to clean up or climb up.  Just look up.  God’s “whoever” policy has a “however” benefit.
