Seeing into a person's soul

It is such an unusual thing, it is hard to describe.  There are some people, that for some reason, you can kind of  "see into their soul."  Maybe it's a spouse, maybe a friend or relative, but you can see into their souls.

Someone once said that the eye is the window of the soul.  I believe that they were on to something.  If you look at people, and if they let you see in, you can often see what is really there.  Sometimes I see hurt in others, sometimes I see fear, but my favorite thing to see is goodness.  Some folks are just good souls.  It is like they have lived through hell and still see the good.  They are beyond judgment.  They look at others and value them.

When we start seeing people as souls, we stop worrying about if they are young or old, pretty or not, rich or poor, etc.  We just see the goodness in them and the value of who  they are as a child of God.  I believe that God looks at us and sees the good.  He made us and called his creation good.

Look someone in the eyes today and offer them a sincere thank you for whatever they may be doing.  Really you are just recognizing them, seeing them, seeeeeeing them, and letting them know that they are valued.  We were made to love and value others.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
