Heart Seeing – see in each person the human face of God And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:33-34 ------------------------------------------------How you see another person determines the quality and direction of your relationships. If you can only see the externals, you will miss the person every time. If you can only see the externals, you will miss the person every time. If you learn to see with your heart, to penetrate the obstacles of stereotypes, prejudices, possessions, appearance, language, performance, and all the rest – if you look deeply into the heart of another – you will find the real person. Your relationships will become and adventure. The fighter knows that the fight is for people. Therefore, people are not the enemy. Your children or your parents are not your enemy. The leaders of the church are not your enemy. Your fellow workers are not your enemy. The people around you in your daily routines – they are not your enemy. Condemned unjustly by Jewish religious leaders, crucified by Roman soldiers, ridiculed by an angry mob of citizens, Jesus – in the midst of pain, humiliation, and apparent defeat – prayed, “Father forgive them; for they know not what they do.” They were not the enemy. Jesus was fighting not for His life, But for theirs!
There is no other way to fight for people than to fight for their hearts.
