“When I was born I was unwanted. When I married Charles, I was unwanted. When I joined the Royal family, I was unwanted. I want to be wanted.” Those are the words of Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. She was 36. Her words probably represent millions of people who long to be wanted by somebody. They bring to mind John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” And Matthew gave a vivid illustration of Jesus’ “wanting” needy people, writing- “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages preaching the gospel….but when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” Are you crying out today, “I want to be wanted” Somebody wants you. His name is Jesus. Reach out to Him. He’s reaching out to you.
