I have a friend that told me that the best thing she brought back from a compassion/ministry trip to China was “new eyes”. When she told me that, I grinned and nodded my head like I knew what she meant. But… I really didn’t. I figured she had a great time and her hipster way of expressing it was that she came home with “new eyes”.
But, I listened to a guy named Skye Jethani talk this morning about the way Jesus saw the world completely different than everyone else. You can view his message if you click here His theory is that the way we see the world comes before the way we act in our world. If we see it as scary and threatening than we will want to attack. But if see it as a place where we don’t need to be afraid, than all of Jesus’ teachings make sense. His teachings only make sense if we can see the world that He saw. I hope you take 15 or 20 minutes to check out Skye’s message!!
I think I get what “new eyes” means now!
Maybe I found mine.. 🙂
