“So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!” 2 Corinthians 5:16
Our human tendencies are to judge, to blame, to criticize and find fault. But how different would our relationships and our daily encounters be if our first reaction was to pause and remember… there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
What if that momentary pause prompted our hearts to be cracked open long enough to catch a glimpse of the more?
What if the more we saw was a God who chose to love us, accept us, and shower down grace long before we got our act together?
What if the more we saw was a God who relentlessly pursues us, even today, despite our royal mess ups and wrong turns.
Lord, today, give us eyes to see the more in front of us.
