The Eyes of God
One of the best things about becoming a parent is learning to see the world through your children's eyes. They have a different perspective than we do. They're not afraid to show excitement over the smallest things, not afraid to cry, not afraid to trust, and not afraid to learn or change. Sometimes, we need these renewed perspectives so we don't forget that ours are skewed. Jesus tells us to have faith like a child, largely because they are much more willing to believe what God says and see what He wants them to see. Children don't hold grudges for more than five minutes, and they don't see anyone as unworthy of love and grace. This is the heart of the Father. This week at Friendship, we'll talk about what it means to have "The Eyes of God", specifically as it relates to how He sees the lost. Who have we already cast off? Who have we hated, avoided, or ignored simply because in OUR eyes, they are not worthy? Have we stopped to consider the Lord's perspective, which might possibly put us at odds with Him? We'll dig into the story of an Old Testament prophet who just couldn't see with God's eyes, simply because of how inconvenient it was for him personally. Join us to find out who, and to have your own hearts moved to begin to see things God's way!
