Tell Me What You See ~ A Journeying Soul

Looking on the outward causes us to miss the point.

Greetings Dear Reader,

My dear friends Misty and Jason took me to breakfast yesterday. We went to a restaurant I had never visited and it was quite good. The food was great, the atmosphere was French quarter, and our server was brilliant.

I wrote yesterday about treating service persons with love and respect. It caused me to ponder another level which I got to employ. We all respond to outward appearance in some way. Since following Christ is partly training the mind to see things as Christ does, this demands a deeper level of seeing others as more than their appearance.

I said that our server was brilliant. She was also intelligent, beautiful, and kind. The task is to engage with someone in a way reaching beyond the outward to the soul. Every human is on a journey back to the Father. Even if they do not believe this, it is true. When engaging with other humans, it is simpler to focus on love, kindness, and grace if we see them as a soul on its way to the Father.

Instead of being distracted by appearance, we can engage with lives and enrich them. During our meal, we learned our server is a nursing student, moved here from far away, and she shares our faith. We were able to treat her kindly and all of our lives are better for it. The deep magic in this is seeing every soul as one worthy of our love and kindness.

Now I must ponder if I treat everyone with this intentional deference. I have to see each human soul in each encounter, Dear Reader. A simple invitation to breakfast can turn into life-enriching interaction if we focus on souls over appearance, situation, or station. When we are told to love the Father with all that we are, it is vital to realize how deeply loving human souls can facilitate it.

If I see every life as a journeying soul, I can travel with those I encounter, sharing love and kindness in a way that makes the journey richer for both of us. It is in this view where Christ, their soul, and mine can share the road and draw closer to being in harmony with the Father. When we do this, everything else seems secondary.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Every human story is part of the great story that leads to the Father getting everything back to Good.
