I didn't have much interest in people as a kid. Once I discovered books, the life within them seemed more real than the bustle around me.
I cared for and liked people but I didn't really see them...
Until I landed a job at my local newspaper.
As a freelancer, my editor expected a story on a person every two weeks to grace our Neighbors section, and it needed to be interesting. The story was supposed to focus on a local resident's unique skill or talent.
I was blind, not understanding, wondering how I could find these "special" people.
My editor forever changed my perpective. He told me every person has something unique, something special--even if they don't know it. It was my job to find that slant and spotlight it.
Now everyone I meet I'm full of curiosity about. Who are they? What's their story? Where have they been and where are they going?
If you were a story, what genre would you be? How do you see people? How do you think God sees people?
