We are all watchers but few of us really see. Many watched the birds fly, but it was the Wright brothers who saw that their wings were curved on the upper surface, thus enabling us to fly, too. Many had seen the lowly peanut plant, but Dr. George Washington Carver saw in it a host of products and derivatives that have blessed our lives. Many biologists had watched mold form in the culture dish, but Alexander Fleming saw penicillin and an advance in human health resulted.
What do you see when you look at your Christian brethren? Do you see flesh and blood or do you see a child of God? Do you see inexperience or maturity in the making? Do you see shortcomings or potential? Do you see a boy or a future elder or preacher? Do you see a church with a troubled history or a church that has the ability to be a beacon to the world?
“But Jehovah said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have rejected him: for Jehovah seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but Jehovah looketh on the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). Do we look at our brethren as God sees them? “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Jehovah. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isa. 55:8-9).
How we see one another can make all the difference in the world.
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
