“Look to the right and see – there is none who takes notice of me…” Psalm 142:4 (ESV)
Sometimes it helps to just notice. To honor someone with notice. We rush through life and never see the housekeeper at work, the guy who delivers the supplies or our husband who plugged our phone in last night.
There are so many people who make our lives better. Who do jobs with little thanks. Some of them perform task that the world considers menial – unimportant. We pass right by them without, well, without notice.
The degree of my willingness to “see” appears to be tied to my degree of busyness. If I notice too much, I will need to get involved. And, I just don’t have time…
Jesus noticed all those around Him – even those who just touched the hem of His robe.
He is so keenly aware of people. He meets our needs and heals our brokenness. Jesus sees past our masks and those silly smiles we wear to hide from the world. Getting involved in our messy lives is His desire.
Can I challenge each of us this week to notice? To say thanks more often. To touch the shoulder or arm of someone and look them in the eye. Take some time to…notice.
