There are so many stinkin' people here, and I want to get to know every single one of them. I want to sit down with the people I see every day and listen. I want to know what they've been through. I want to know where they were when Jesus redeemed them from the pit. I want to know where they're going, what their questions are, who they know.
I want to listen to the boy who has never known love. I want to listen to the girl who has been heartbroken time and time again. I want to learn about the background of the adult student. I want to hear about why that person acts they way they do.
I want to get to know people. I want to stand amazed at what people have been through and what God is doing through their struggles and their good times...their storms and their sunshine.
Lord, give me opportunity.
