You’re not weary of all that holiday music playing in every store you’ve set foot in for the past six weeks, are you? Didn’t that begin sometime around Halloween? It gets earlier every year. For 2014, it will start right after Arbor Day. Mark my words. At any rate, one of those tired old songs asks this: Do you see what I see? That’s not a bad question. Especially if the Lord asks it of you.
Day 40 – What are you not seeing?
The Lord can teach us the discipline of paying attention—attention to the way suffering works for the good in our lives, attention to our need to ask forgiveness from someone, attention to how we can serve somebody. We will not see if we do not look. Here’s a prayer: What have I missed, Lord?
