People are turned into objects by the world. We see it all the time in movies, news, TV. People are shown as caricatures of what they really are, turning them into nothing but “things”.
People are so much more than this. We are made in the image and likeness of God. (Genesis 1:27)
Looking around us, we see all kinds of angry upset people; in the checkout line, in their cars, protesters screaming in rage at each other. We need to look more deeply into their faces. What hell has their life become that we know nothing of.
I recently found a video on YouTube from a couple of young kids, singing about this very thing. They urge us to notice people, the real people, all around us. The video brings tears to my eyes everytime!
