“Jesus saw her.” (Luke 13:12, John 11:33-45, or “Jesus saw him” Matt. 9:9, Mark 12:34, John 9:1, John 5:6 etc.)
One of the remarkable qualities about Jesus is that he truly sees the man or woman in need that he encounters. So often we pass by without seeing. To see in this way is not dependent on physical sight. It is to be known, to be respected, to be loved. May we, too, see those around us.
Father God, help me to see others as Jesus does. Help me to take a moment to speak your words of hope, peace and love into their lives.
