One day a little boy said to his friend, “When I get older, I want to wear glasses just like Granny’s because she can see so much more than other people. She can see the good in a person when everyone else sees their bad. She can see what a fellow meant to do even if he didn’t do it! I asked her one day how she could see so good and she said it was the way she learned to look at things when she got older. So when I get older, I want a pair of glasses just like Granny’s so I can see good too!”
How different the word would be if we all wore a pair of Granny’s glasses. Apostle Paul reminded the church in Galatia, “Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Gal 6:9) Maybe we are missing out on seeing the good and beautiful things in people’s lives? May we not give either! I challenge you to try on a pair of “Granny’s Glasses.” You may be surprised by what you see not only in others but also in yourself.
