so I notice



To us something may seem like the smallest of troubles, but it could have a spiritual significance beyond comprehension, deep below the surface.

God, forgive me for the times I've disregarded another person's tragedy because I thought it too small.  Awaken my heart so I notice when someone hurts, and give me Your grace to offer comfort.

My pastor made a statement recently which applies. He said, "We cannot define someone else's tragedy." How simple and true. Trena

What a true statement, and one that is easily dismissed. I try to put myself in the other person's shoes and not judge. I think that basically, whatever tragedy or heartache someone is feeling is as deep as they feel it is. Thank you for your post.
