As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I was thinking of a phrase that Mother Teresa said, “I see God in every human being. When I washed the leper’s wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is that not a beautiful experience? The other day I was going to an appointment, and I saw a homeless woman on the street. I wish I could say I pulled over and ministered to her needs, but I caught myself wanting to ignore her. I’ve seen her many times before but what happened to my empathy and compassion.
It’s easy to become frustrated with our streets becoming crowded with people and complain about homelessness but when did we stop seeing Jesus in others. Mother Theresa is a great reminder that HE is present in them! When we can see Jesus in every one of our brothers and sisters and we don’t see race, poverty, sex, or class we can restore order and peace to our world.
Today I’m going to look for Jesus in everyone I encounter, and I am going to ask for the grace to see the Lord‘s face in them and offer them dignity love, and peace! Have a wonderful day encountering Jesus!
