Okay... 803 am. Three Two One GO
When I see this word it says HEY! Notice ME!!!! See Me!!! The thing that people want to have is to be noticed...don't you find?
But the question is...should we be asking to be seen, to be noticed?
I sometimes wonder this.
You see I like to be noticed. and sometimes I will do odd things to make sure that folks notice me. But lately I'm becoming convinced that wanting to be noticed is not what we should focus on.
Yesterday my son and I were reading about a missionary whose method of reaching people was by reaching out to others with tracts. And some days were hard and he just wanted to give up because of how people treated him and the tracts he handed out. But he overtime learned that it doesn't matter how many people disparage him as long as people are reached for the Lord.
I was talking with my son afterwards about how hard I would find that. And I didn't know if I could do that. His response made me reconsider. He said "mom, it would be hard. I I wouldn't want to do all that standing. But mom...he was doing what God wanted him do and that is what is right. I could do that Mom."
So it was less about being noticed but more about doing what God wants us to.
Isn't that what we should focus on?
