Over the holidays, our church incorporated a segment on The Little Drummer Boy into our Christmas musical. (It was based somewhat on the one made famous several years ago by Prestonwood Baptist Church out in Plano, Texas.)
Later, when my daughter, Andrea, was home for Christmas, we were discussing all of this. In that conversation, she shared what had happened earlier at her church, New Vision Baptist Church, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Her pastor was preaching a series titled “Do You See What God Sees?” As a part of that series, the following video was shown in their worship.
I post it here today in the hopes that it will speak to you as much as it did me.
Praise God for what all He sees! This includes the future each of us possesses in accordance with His will. More importantly, it includes the value each of us holds in His eyes.
So, do you see what God sees? I hope so! Because, if you do, you will invariably learn to value each and every human life as well.
I leave you with the fitting words of Jeremiah, the Old Testament Prophet (29:11): “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
