Who Do We See?

March 30, 2012

For many years, Allen Funt’s Candid Camera television program delighted viewers by using a hidden camera to catch the often hilarious reactions of ordinary people to unexpected situations. Their approach, according to his son Peter was: “We believe people are wonderful, and we’re out to confirm it.” Peter feels the perspective of some other similar shows is that “people are stupid, and we’re going to find ways to underscore that.”

His comments point out that our view of people determines how we treat them.

The citizens of Jericho were offended when Jesus went to the home of Zacchaeus the tax collector. “When they saw it, they all complained, saying, ‘He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner’” (Luke 19:7). Yet, when Zacchaeus had a deep change of heart (v.8), Jesus told him, “Today salvation has come to this house . . . for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost” (vv.9-10).

My friend Bob Horner says, “When we see people as losers, we treat them with contempt. When we see them as lost, we treat them with compassion.”

Jesus doesn’t see losers, only lost people He loves. When we look at others, who do we see?

Oh, give me, Lord, Your love for souls,
For lost and wandering sheep,
That I may see the multitudes
And weep as You did weep. —Harrison
Those who have been found should seek the lost.

Read: Luke 19:1-10

The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. —Luke 19:10
Bible in a Year:
1 Kings 1-4

I’m guessing you are understaffed...glad you have a week off in just a few hours.

Hour are the kids doing? Solly ever decide to let her wounds heal?

Kitty doing any better?

Been there with the bad hair cut.....thankfully it grows back pretty quickly. No more dice rolling unless you have the instructions on a note card.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

How are you doing tonight? I'm still sore from last night's PT - was hard to move most of the day. Still, making progress. I guess Tuesdays and Thursdays will be tough days for the next few weeks.

Hope you have your sun back.

We’ve been short for weeks and weeks.

Sol’s wound is looking much better.

Kitty is filling in.

I’ve needed a hair cut for a long time.. Since Runamuck I don’t have the running around time that I used to have.

Not gonna need to throw the dice for a long time.

I imagine...your storms last so much longer than ours do!

I hope your garden is very successful this summer!

Last night was the last time we get to use our sprinklers. From
now on, we can only water for 2 hours on Thursday nights, using
a hand-held sprayer with a trigger that turns on the water.

2 HOURS a WEEK! It’s going to look bad here if we don’t get
rain. :(
