Has this ever happened to you?
You’re about to walk into a grocery store when someone walking by stops and says“God bless you.” You didn’t sneeze or help this person in any way to warrant the God bless you. And as if to make sure you heard him (or to get the job done) he says it again.
Someone on the street approaches you. He knows your name and claims to know you from school, but you know that you’ve never met him before.
Someone on your block calls out to you from across the street, puts his hands in the air and says, “God works in mysterious ways.” You smile and chuckle and he asks “you good?”
You are on your way to church and a man with a guitar is standing in your path. When you reach him he wants to shake your hand and tells you that he loves you.
Some may think that these are crazy people, but I don’t think so.
Did their words bring you comfort in a rough time in your life?
What would happen If you made a conscious effort to get to know them?
If you haven’t had these kind of experiences, ask yourself why.
