1 Samuel 15.35
he grieved long and deeply over him.
God, may our hearts be gripped with love for the people around us. for those you have created for us to do life with, for those we encounter as acquaintances, and for everyone in between. may we feel for them, care enough to go out of our way to let you touch their lives through us, and just have real concern, real care, real love. may we see people more than objects, may we see them the way you - your creation created for relationships and navigating life just like us. may we see them as the ones you love, the ones you laid down your life for, the ones you designed for us to do life with. thank you for your grace that shows us how to live, how to be, how to give, how to be who you are.
