Two weeks ago, I talked about 4 possible steps we can take to improve relationships. The third area I mentioned was learning to be more curious. Try to be more curious than judging, and it will change the way you deal with people. God is continually teaching me to see with new eyes. I think we can all be rebellious instead of curious. In fact, Isaiah (in chapter 6) tells us that rebellious people have ears that can’t hear, eyes that can’t see, and hearts that can’t understand. Instead of being shut down and less curious about other’s perspective, PRAY the Psalm below:
Psalm 119:18 (NIV)
18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
So, What… for This Week?
In Ephesians 1:18, we are encouraged to see with the eyes of our heart. Seeing is a big deal. Seeing with God’s perspective is an ongoing challenge for each of us. Learning to see things with God’s eyes has become increasingly opened up my curiosity and allowed me to better understand other perspectives. Are YOU willing to OPEN UP YOUR EYES?
