Last night, I couldn’t sleep. In my restless state, comforting thought came to me. My husband had been reading W. Phillip Keller’s book, A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23, and shared his insights with me. His idea of how needy we are as people for our Savior’s care was made beautiful as I recited the 23rd Psalm over and over.
It wasn’t long before I fell asleep. We can count sheep or remember our good shepherd as a cure for insomnia. The Lord Jesus Christ in this passage shows how capable He is to care for those He loves even in the midst of great suffering. – Teresa
So the soldiers did these things, 25 but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. John 19:24-27 (ESV)
