You may look at some people in your life and wonder what they’re doing there.
[They may not matter much to you.]
Yet, the truth is you have no idea how important they may be to your future.
[Or, how important you might be to theirs.]
God is not random. He has a Big Plan, and it has to do with people.
…who always seems to show up;
…you can’t seem to lose;
…who rub you the wrong way;
…you see everyday, yet they are strangers to you;
…you wish you could know more.
All those people.
So, don’t ignore them.
Reconsider your relationship with them.
Give them your respect.
Treat them with gentleness.
Help them, encourage them, and bless them.
Look for the opportunity to love them.
Pray God’s will for their lives, lift them up when they are down.
A little time and compassion matter.
And, always remember that no matter what you might think about their life right now, or the choices they’ve made so far, God has always had a plan and a purpose for their lives.
He’s been waiting for you to play your part.
