Live it.

Profiling is the term used for coming to a conclusion about someone from looking at them. It's supposed to be illegal for policemen to do it, but that is the essence of how they operate. We Christians should profile people, not to judge them, but to discern if they need to hear the gospel. Above all, we should recognize that the way someone looks doesn't dictate what they believe, but judging what they do, or don't do, can send mixed signals.

Yesterday an older man came to install a new large format printer in our office which was somewhat challenging. After he completed his work, we relaxed and began to speak light-heartedly to one another. He laughed and said it was not fair for someone my "age" to have such a full head full of hair. I tried to avoid looking at his bald head when I smiled and replied, "I had nothing to do with it. My mother blessed me with good follicles." I think the man was younger than me, but age is not something people generally talk about. As for me, most people think I'm younger than I am. As for my gray hair, people considered me a senior adult twenty years before I was. Unfortunately, my youngest daughter could have the same problem.

Pray it.

The more I learn about You, Father, the more I understand Your Son.
