In God’s Eyes



We see it all the time, especially in these times. People raising other people up, maybe because of their status in the company, maybe because they have more money, etc. Whatever the case may be, know this. God loves you and accepts you as you are.

I was recently upgraded on a flight I took, and not because I paid more to get the upgrade. Some call it luck, others, like me, call it God’s grace.

As I was sitting in the first class area of the plane, I made an observation that concerned me. The stewardess came by to ask what type of snack I would like. She offered a variety of snacks, albeit a higher grade of snacks. But, as she passed me by to the people seated in coach, I noticed she didn’t offer the same types of snacks, but a lower grade of snacks.

What separated us? Money?

I guess I just have a giving heart. I would want to give everyone the same type of snack, regardless of where they sat.

God loves the poor and the humble. He hates pride and arrogance.

I pray you don’t treat others differently, just because of the color of their skin, their political views or their lack of education.

Love as God loves. Give to those in need, and treat each other fairly.

Ephesians 4: 32 – “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
