1 Corinthians 9:22
This morning I have been thinking a lot about this idea of identifying with those around me. What this exactly means and how do you do so without at times compromising your beliefs and who you are.
I speak to a lot of people day in and day out. I have a job that requires me to play “mediator” quite a bit which requires many emails/telephone conversations. As I was telling someone last night, this often winds up with me gaining a friend… which is humorous to me considering the amount of stress involved…..
But there are those certain relationships that you just know God has formed for a reason and you try to make sure you walk in this path He as laid out. How though? How can I identify with all to gain some?
Most who read this blog know me and know that I am “passionate” about others knowing my Christ. Not so they can be just like me and think just like me, but so they know the Hope I have.
I so desire to be able to touch the hurting people of this world, the ones who show their pain to me and the ones who guard it. To be able to tell them that there is One who knows all our our pain, sickness, brokenness, and yet He truly reaches out and touches the leper in all of us.
May God grant me the wisdom to be compassionate on all and show Christ no matter the circumstances. There is no high like knowing you just watched God change a heart and nothing more humbling than the idea He used you to do it….
To Him be all the Glory!
