"We meet no ordinary people in life." CS Lewis, Mere Christianity
So the other day while I was scrolling through quotes by CS Lewis (For those of you who don't know, imagination of probably the most amazing stories in the world, Chronicles of Narnia) I found the quote above.
It is so true. Yet we sometimes -- actually, most of the time -- don't learn people's hearts. We don't get to know them enough, care enough -- to actually understand people. But the fact is, there are no ordinary people in life.
We know everyone's different. We might have categories for the "bubbly" people, the "quiet" people, the funny people and the ugly people.
But that's just surface stuff, and we need to know it. There's no such thing as perfect people -- and there's no such thing as ordinary people.
With that truth, I think it's time I live with a different perspective. I don't know people; it's not up to me to judge. No siree, I'm leaving that up to God. And as for me...
please show me how i can understand people better.
the one's i don't get along with,
the personalities i might clash with.
you're teaching me to accept, to love unconditionally.
not to judge.
remind me, Jesus, that there's no such thing as
You made us all.
we can have a heart like Yours.
teach me, teach us;
to understand eachother.
