Reach - Then Teach
Dear Hannah: LEarning (People (Acceptance))
I'm a people watcher - a careful observer of human behavior.
Watching people has taught me that when I look at them ...
... sometimes I am looking through a window.
... other times I am looking in a mirror.
When I stare through a window in the afternoon, I see outside.
Staring through a window at night shows me "me".
The mirror always shows me "me" ... but also shows me what is behind me ... and what is to come.
Man, I hope all that makes sense.
But let me spell it out.
What you see is always a personal lesson for you ... if you see it that way.
That is a blessing.
Don't take the easy road of judgement and opinion.
Take the less-travelled road ... be advised and forewarned - especially when you watch someone else struggle or fall.
That might have been you - but for the power of healing and redemption.
That could still be you - but for God's amazing wisdom, grace and mercy.
