Serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14
03/05/09 This morning, for the first time, I saw another person as God sees them. Three women I didn’t know crossed the street in front of my car while I was sitting at a stop light on the way to work. By the time I realized that I had one of those wistful smiles you can’t help but have while you’re watching your children and realize that your heart is warmed by the attachment the Lord has given you to these little people, I was encountering God in my car. I was overcome with affection for these women and my Heavenly Papa. Especially since I haven’t prayed for this in quite awhile, but He gave me this wonderful gift, anyway. Recently, I have noticed that I’ve needed some work in this area because I encounter others who extend grace where I am still prone to judge. I thank God He’s not done with me.
