The focus of this blog has always been to find the divine in each person so that when we approach a stranger or someone we don't particularly like, we will not be afraid or angered because we know that they too possess the same image of God as me or you. In my quest, I am often so focused on the task that I forget to look at the obvious. God is there looking back at me.
Today, in my personal meditation, the prompt asked, “How do you feel about God regarding you?” In other words, how does it make me feel to know that God is looking at me through the eyes of Jesús or all the other people I pass by on a daily basis?
How does God see me? How does God see you? And how might that affect the way you interact with the world around you?
The point isn't so much to impress God or others. But how you live in harmony with both. Kindness can beget kindness. Joy can beget joy. And a smile can beget a smile. This is what I want God, and others to see in me. And whenever I fail, I hope both will show me how it's done.
