We live in a world of distraction. Richard Foster, author of the book, Celebration of Discipline, wrote, “In contemporary society our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds.” All these things compete for our attention, making it challenging to focus our attention on the people God has put in our path. The result? Our own family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and acquaintances are often overlooked or intentionally avoided.
How do we swim against this cultural current and get back to the place where we see people, really see people like Jesus?
