to see

I have decided that simply seeing other people is one of the most spiritual things that we can do.  I don't mean looking at people, I mean seeing the value inside of them.  Really looking at them and valuing them as God does.

We sing, Open my eyes that I might see.  But do we really see?  Do we see the poor?  Do we see the hungry, dirty people who sleep in the park?  Is the server at the restaurant someone who better help us well, or is the server a human being?  Do we treat others the way that we would want to be treated?

We find awakening when we SEE others.  Stop.  STOP.  Stop your life long enough to encounter them.  Ask their name.  Shake their hand.  Always leave a tip.  Give grace in the measure that you would want to receive it.

I see you.

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