“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Jesus said that in Luke 12. It is in the context of not worrying because God knows every little detail about us.
In other words- God Sees Us. He knows us intimately. He knows everything about us. There is never a time that we are out of God’s sight.
In my ministry and work, I reach out to people most others do not see. I am not talking about physically seeing them. I am talking about acknowledging people. Acknowledging people means we are saying to them- I see and value you.
Even simple things like saying hi to someone in a wheelchair instead of looking the other way or smiling when we see someone different than us in the store acknowledges them.
As Christians we should be to first to want to validate people and acknowledge them because we have experienced God seeing us.
A new blogger I follow is Darci. Her blog is Radiantly Broken. Darci is in a wheelchair. Yesterday she shared a post about The God Who Sees. It is about how it comforts her that God sees her even when others don’t It is an excellent post to read.
When I read her post, I thought about my students from other countries. One common desire they have is to make friends with Americans. I also thought about the students I have had in the past who are in a wheelchair or live with a disability. Simple acts such opening the classroom door for them surprises them because I am the teacher yet serving them.
I hope to do a better job of seeing, acknowledging, others just as God sees me.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
