its funny how over time view changes
how we see ourselves.
how we see others.
how we see “things” in general.
i’m finding the longer that i walk with the Lord the more I see through His eyes.
i guess this is what “working out your salvation” really means.
not taking pieces of the Word to see what fits my life…but looking at things again and again from different angles till i see it His way.
view…what do i see when i see the hurting? the “lost”? the broken? the mourning among us?
what do i see?
there was a time when i saw what i wanted to see…judgement being an instinct.
and then mercy happened. (see definition)
i asked God to show me people like He sees them.
so often i’ve gotten that part wrong too, but i think i’m finally starting to see it slightly more His way than mine.
looking at His kids like i look at my own.
loving them…crying with them…laughing with them…offering a hand up and a shoulder to cry on.
cause isn’t that what Jesus did?
i think that’s what loving the least of these looks that.
not judging them for their ick or even trying to fix it.
but just giving them something to eat, something to drink, clothing them, looking after and visiting them.
cause let’s face it…WE ALL HAVE ICK!
“There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.”
instead let’s love and THEN help others keep out of the icky puddles.
not because we’re better…but because we know that this view is!
