God's Glasses

You don't need them. Everyone has an issue in life. You don't need to know what their personal one is; only that we're all going through something.

I showed this video to my 7th grade students. We talked about what it would be like if everyone in the world wore their "struggle" on a t-shirt for all to see. Then I asked them to write down on a sticky note what their t-shirt would say.....the thing that they struggle with the most....the deepest, darkest, withOUT their names on the paper. I had them put the sticky note on a large, moveable white board that was aimed away from the class, so no one would see whose post was whose. I cried all day. From alcoholic parents to being bullied every day to being totally neglected and ignored by parents, to being homeless, to watching their parents do drugs every night, right down to the one that I'll never forget: "I'm living such a great life, that my biggest fear is that everything is going to go wrong at any moment." I don't think I can do that activity again, but I am glad to find this video again, as I WILL SHOW IT AGAIN to my kids this week. We ALL need to remember that EVERYONE is fighting some sort of battle. God bless us all............

I was getting food somewhere and this woman passed by me with a real sour look and I judged her for that look...then later in line, she was in front of me and I noticed it was that same woman, and she was tearing up and told me the holiday won't be happy because her mother passed away...so sad.I wanted to cry too.I only hope I have my God Glasses on the next time I want to judge , by what I see. God help me.

There are reasons for everything... we just don't always know the reasons. what we "think" we see, may be something entirely different from what we think we see. We tend to make assumptions and take things personally. Everyone is carrying their own hurts and disappointments, and we need to remember this.

These people have never lived in Florida which is sad, because consideration is not a common traight.

God gets all the Glory. His grace is AMAZING, and I am just a vessel. I Love Him because HE FIRST LOVED ME. I am forgiven, and LOVED, neither of which I deserve. I just want as many as possible to feel what God has let me feel! You gals Rock!

I agree, wholeheartedly. Funny, I heard a sermon many years ago, the minister was trying to get us to see through glasses like those. He used and example of a waitress in a restaurant - I cannot remember if it was a personal experience of his, or an analogy - but he suggested that before we judge someone who is helping us that may not be giving us the excellent service we expect, or attitude, etc. - to see them as a person - a woman that may have just lost a child, or maybe her husband left her, maybe she just got a bad medical diagnosis, or had her home robbed, is about to get evicted, you just never know. People are people, whether they are the customer service person on the phone, the homeless man on the corner, the person who gives you your burger and fries - I pray that I can have his eyes and his heart toward others, that is the only way to really get it right. He will give us these gifts, when we ask for them, for they really do please him - just like King Solomon - who did not ask for riches or power, but only the wisdom to lead God's people - and God gave him more than he could have asked for because he was pleased with his choice.

This skit is an incredible challenge to us all to slow down embrace the hold ups in life as gods hand on ouir life and to use them to show love acceptance and support for our fellow sisters and brothers for we are all carrying heavy loads that need a saviour to lift. So let us spread the good news of our own saviour in word and in deed so that others will know who he is and how he helps us to face the challenges of life.
