Day 7 - Pauses for Lent - Light

3/13/2019

As I gaze out my window this afternoon, what do I see? I see seven deer, grazing in my back yard. A thing of beauty! A gift from God!

I was reminded of a slogan from a conference I attended a few years ago--- SEE ME! It makes me mindful to not just scan people as I shop in Walmart but really look into their faces and maybe even say 'HELLO'. It might mean that at church service I don't glibly speak as I rush to my seat, but take the time to inquire about their well-being. I just might find out they have a need that I can provide. If I want Jesus to SEE ME, then I must SEE others.


Prayer:

Lord, as we rush through our days, concerned only about what affects us, please slow us down so that we may SEE others. Not just see them as a physical body, but SEE them through your eyes. Help us remember your commandment to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. In His name we ask it all. AMEN.

Rev. Mattie Gibson
