You Is Important

Broad Street Coffeeshop is a Haven for a Once Homeless Man
I really enjoyed this article.  It was a great reminder to me to be kind to everyone.  Give sincere thank-yous and hellos.   Don't be afraid to ask a question or give a compliment.  And I need to reprogram my judgmental mind and give people the benefit of the doubt. 

It reminds me of Jane Bennet in Pride and Prejudice.  She was so kind to everyone, and always believed the best.  I want to be more like that.

To speak words of truth to others, like Aibileene, 

And C.S. Lewis' famous line, "There are no 'ordinary' people. You have never talked to a mere mortal."

Makes me want to run down to Starbucks and sit down with everyone and hear their life story.  People are incredibly important. 

God does know each person.  He knows our stories, struggles, wounds, gifts, abilities, needs, bank account balance, where we sleep at night, ... He knows it all.  And his response to this is the Ultimate in letting us know we're important-
This is how much God loved the world:
He gave his Son, his one and only Son.
And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed;
by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
-John 3:16 (MSG)
