I think I was born to ruffle people’s feathers. I am not saying that I heard a voice from above saying “And he will ruffle everyone’s feathers”.
I mean that, that is the reaction I get from people when I open my mouth (mostly). When I look at my life I realise that this happens in all areas, therefore I am concluding that I must be born to do that.
English Standard Version (©2001)
“The one who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and the one who receives a righteous person because he is a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward.”
And no I am not declaring that I am a prophet. I think what Jesus was saying here, is that how you see a person will determine what you can receive from them.
If you see me as a pain (and most people do ha ha ha) well then that is all that you will get from me.
I was simply thinking that we so often only see what we want out of people, versus who they truly are. Companies especially make this mistake. They only care about the performance of a person in the area needed.
Its so short sighted, what if the best people for the things needed to be done are right in front of us, and we never see it. Because we so focused on what they said to us, how they treated us, or even better how could they do that. That one always baffles me. It shocks some people that some are shocked when people do evil things.
Its almost like for that moment we forget our own capabilities. But getting back to the point. I will stick to my ground, and say that how you see someone will determine what they are capable to do in your life.
We do have the capacity to be stretched more, be honest more, and live more…..
