The thing about eyes is – if you look close enough into another person’s eyes you can actually see what they see… you. I saw this picture the other day and thought (after blowing it up) … I can see what this boy saw. I can see a person in a red shirt taking a picture, a little yellow bug, and a house with a porch. I can see a blue sky. I can see the beginning of a story.
I don’t know why this struck me, but it does make me wonder what I would see if I looked closely enough in another person’s eyes. That person might be someone who needs my financial help, my emotional help, or my spiritual help. They might need a prayer. They might just need an outstretched hand.
Would I see in their eyes an extended hand, or would I see just the shell of me walking by?
To take it a step further, would God see just a reflection or would He see something more?
I struggle with this thought from time to time. I hope that God sees something more than just a shell. I pray that I am extending my hand when needed. I pray that I don’t walk by.
What about you?
