 Special Needs.
Who qualifies?
Google Answer:

Special needs individuals are individuals who require external or internal extra help.
Remedies for special needs might include the following:
Medicine, therapy, special teachers, specific environments,
A specialized and prescribed treatment plan.
Hmmm …
God looks down on mankind.
What do you think He sees?
Do you think He nods His head with approval at "a few" and suggests that He is satisfied by  superior qualities possessed?
Or ...
Does He see individuals who have special needs and require specific assistance:
Mentally, Emotionally, Physically, Spiritually.
God looked at His special needs kids and He decided that we needed more than:
Teachers, Trainers, Educators, Entertainers, Medications, Doctors, Writers, Therapists, and Theologists.
God got really serious and He sent us a Savior Jesus Christ and the very Spirit of His Savior to indwell, comfort, console, correct, counsel, teach, and assist us.
He did this because He saw us as His “special needs” kids and none of us were exceptions.
Emotionally, mentally, developmentally, and spiritually …
God saw we lacked sufficiency.
And so He gave us His “All-Sufficiency."
You can resist, refuse, and resent your needy status or you can accept it for exactly what it is and receive redemption from a Savior who longs to fill you.
The God of special needs ...
Do you know Him?
