See People The Way God Does And You Will Love Them As You Should

If you remember the movie Avatar, with the blue people, their greeting to each other was, I see you. The meaning is not that you are standing right in front of me, of course I see you. It means, I see who you are. I recognize you as a person.

Try to "see" people the way God does.

Try to “see” people the way God does.

I like that. It’s far too easy to simply acknowledge people casually, or not at all. We don’t remember that God loves them wildly — so much that He died for them. We need to see people the way He does. People have immense value to God, despite the differences we may have with each other.

Loving people is a core aspect of the kingdom. Jesus told us, Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other. (Jhn 13:35)

Once you start thinking about how much God loves everyone, you start looking at them differently. Try to see them for who they really are. You’ll start to notice jewels and treasure in them, and you’ll begin to love as we are meant to.
