I See You, I Hear You, I Love You

When you look at me what do you see? When you look at your neighbor what do you see? Have you ever bothered to really consider the people around you? When you run into someone on the street and you say, “Hey! How are you?” do you actually really care? More often than not you do not want to hear about someones bad back, or their struggles with their landlord, or how they are having problems on the job. All you really want to hear is the perfunctory reply of, “I’m fine and you?”  They probably want to hear the same from you. 
If all we are receiving from our neighbors, friends, and even family is the customary, perfunctory answers and replies, then how are we effectively communicating with one another? If we are not effectively communicating with one another than how can we show LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER as the bible tells us to do? 1 Peter 4:8 tells us “And above all things have fervent love for one anotherfor “love will cover a multitude of sins”. As a matter of fact, loving one another is so important to God that it is mentioned numerous times in the bible in 1 John, 1 Peter, Romans, Galatians, and in 1 Thessalonians.
I do not believe that God wants us to just look AT someone, look AROUND someone, or talk AT someone. I believe God wants us to actually SEE ONE ANOTHER, LISTEN TO ONE ANOTHER, and genuinely LOVE ONE ANOTHER. We must learn to look at someone and SEE them the way GOD SEES THEM. So lets start working on that, okay?


Soooooo, how are YOU today?


Smooches,
