Discerning fellow human beings means truly seeing The Other:
To the degree we see each other simply as needy target groups, we utterly miss the mark; the mark of love.
Do I get it, do I really get it: that God loves The Other NO LESS than He loves me?
I was hungry
I was in homeless
I was sick
I was in prison
Because God identifies Himself precisely with that poor brother, that stricken sister,
that malnourished child.
How about this thought: He is better able to associate with the above-mentioned than with those of us who think we have it all.
Lack of truly seeing The Other can mean an astounding lack of discernment.
Some of us proclaim ourselves unwittingly as the extremists we are.
Fooled by our own advertising, we may be the only ones blind to our own blinkers.
Sleeper wake up!
Blind man see!
How revolutionary is
