The Most Unlikely

by Linda Handzel

Did you know that Jesus loves the most unlikely people?

Luke chapter eight tells the story of a woman who dared to approach Jesus for healing, even though she was a social outcast. That woman had been bleeding for twelve years and, according to the law, wasn’t even supposed to be out in public. She had no money, because she had spent it all trying to find a cure for her illness. No one wanted to be near her, and no one thought she was important. But in her desperation, she pushed through the crowd and touched the bottom of Jesus’ clothes. And He cared. He considered her to be important and healed her. My friend, it does not matter what society says about you, Jesus thinks you are worth His time and His love.
