In Someone Else’s Skin

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:32, NASB)

The next time you have a headache or are tired or have a sore throat, look at the people around you and ask yourself this:

What would it feel like to be in their skin? How would it be to deal with their discomforts,

  • to be their size, shape, and weight?
  • to wake up every day in their home, to their family, with their concerns, temptations, and weaknesses?
  • to see the world through their eyes, as colored by their memories?

We are frail, physical creatures. Everyone around you is a frail, physical creature. Today each of them could use a little patience, a little understanding…a little compassion.
