What if...

What if we didn't see the pregnant teenager, the poor kid, the fat girl, or the girl that's too skinny? What if we didn't see the nerdy kid, the rich kid, the cheerleader, or the band kid? What if we didn't see the black person, mexican, asian or any ethnicity? What if we didn't see the infertile woman, the plain jane, or the girl that causes all the drama? What if we didn't see the sexual abuse victim, physical abuse victim or the burn victim? What if we didn't see the person behind the counter, the person there to serve us? What if we didn't see the person who cut us off or wrecked into us? 

What if instead of giving a person our own label, we label them creations of God Himself that deserve our time. What if we could stop judging and starting seeing every person as a person? If we slowed down our lives enough and open our eyes we will see many opportunities we have each day to show Christ's love. I can only imagine the how many I have missed in the busyness of life. I am not only talking about strangers. People in our ministry you may not know well...anyone!
