What do you see when you look at people? Have you ever thought about what you see when you look at people or why that might matter? I’m becoming more and more convinced that what we see when we look at the world around us will determine how faithful we are in our service to Jesus. Let me give you an example.
Someone once went to D.L. Moody to ask him why his ministry was so effective. He called them over to the window, had them look out on a city park, and asked them what they saw. They responded that they saw families playing, people walking their dog and generally, just things you would see in a park. They asked him what he saw and with tears in his eyes he said, “Souls, precious souls that will spend eternity in hell without Jesus Christ.” What should we see as we look at the world around us? That’s what this message is about.
