21 Nov Luke 16:21
21 and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores.
The poor man was in a position where he was looking from the outside. It is almost as if he was window shopping, only he longed for something he needed to survive, which was food. He saw this guy “feasting” in a very lavish and elaborate manner. The dogs even felt sorry for Lazarus, as they licked his wounds. Maybe you find yourself in this position today, or have been there in the past. Lazarus had hit rock bottom. No matter how far we fall, or how low we feel, Jesus is always there having never left. If you are currently in a situation like this, or feel beneath others, remember God has made you in His image. Know this world is not our home, and God has much more in store for those who trust in Him.
