Sunday Verses

Devotional on Taking the Time to See Others
Happy Sunday! As a kid I remember trying to count the rings of tree stumps. I liked looking at the different rings, seeing the tree's story--the years of major growth and the years that the tree went through drought and tough times. If we could look "inside" others, we would see that we all have a story. Every person we meet has been through something, something that has changed them and helped them to become who they are. We need to take the time to see and understand each other's stories. All around us people are living out difficult circumstances. We need to seek out their stories, listen, recognize their pain, take a real and genuine interest in each other. When we know people's stories, we are humbled and we are better able to love each other. Take the time to ask questions, to look inside others and truly see them.

  1. That is so true, Becky. Happy Sunday to you. We each need to remember to be mindful of those around us and the journey they've taken through life. I wish everyone could have had the happy home I grew up in, but I know, sadly, that is not true.

    Blessings to you and your outreach! Net
