We are to look for Jesus in others with all that we have.
Do you try to see the best in others?
Do you look for the glint in their eye?
What’s special about that person you are interacting with today? What do you see in them that reminds you of the glory of God’s creation?
Even when darkness or despair is overtaking a person, do we search for some kind of beauty in them? Do we see them as magnificent creatures that God values and loves and wants to draw closer to Him with every passing moment?
There’s a glint somewhere in there.
Are we doing anything to ignite it? Are we really looking?
Do we feel afraid to point it out when we see Jesus shining through? Are we blinded by our own unwillingness to look deeper, harder, get outside of the box that we have placed others in depending on their situation or circumstance?
Look for the glint. It’s there.
Then, make sure to point it out. Celebrate it. Make it known that you see it.
Have that moment where you connect – eye to eye – Jesus vision to Jesus vision.
Then sit back and enjoy what you see.
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus….
Look full in His wonderful face…
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace. (Helen Lemmel)
It’s in all of us. He is inside of every one of us who has accepted Him as our Lord and Savior.
Look for Him.
Even if you have to squint to see the glint.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4: 7-8
