Seeing Afresh

rubbish-tip

What do you see in the picture above?

Rubbish, heaps of old rubbish.

Discarded bikes, empty packets, broken items, no good for anything.  Only fit for the rubbish tip.

Yet, I wonder if there is perhaps a little more?

Perhaps, if an artist were to look at this picture, what potential would they see?  Maybe a masterpiece, maybe something that challenges peoples understanding, maybe something incredibly beautiful

homeless-pic

What do you see in the picture above?

Homeless, rejected, alcoholic, failure.  Only fit for the streets, getting nothing more than they deserve?

Yet, I wonder if there is perhaps a little more?

Perhaps, if we asked Jesus what He sees, we might hear words like, beautiful, friend, somebody worth dying for, somebody that can be redeemed.  Maybe a masterpiece, maybe somebody that can challenge our perceptions.

mirror

Look in the mirror.  What do you see?

Perhaps, we need to ask Jesus for His vision today
