Seeing

What does this look like?


“…when he saw him, he had compassion

To really “see” others: Slow down and listen

“He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” (Mark 5:34)

 

“The Samaritan woman said to him, ‘You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?’ (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans).” (John 4:9)

 

“When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.’(Luke 19:5)

Obstacles:

  • Busyness
  • Self-focus
  • Christian bubble
  • Attitude

Slow Down


“Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” (Luke 19:9-10)

Listen

 

Questions:

  • What kind of feedback am I giving?
  • Am I answering before listening?

“To answer before listening—that is folly and shame.” (Proverbs 18:13)

  • Do I ask good questions?

“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” (Proverbs 20:5)
