Reach - Then Teach

Reach - Then Teach

Dear Hannah: LEarning (People (Acceptance))

November 27, 2017

Dear Hannah,

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.
