I can learn from this.
June 10, 2020 by Grant

This video gives me the feels… on many levels. There’s the obvious – a little white boy hugging a big black man. And then there’s even more.

There’s a lesson of actually stopping and being thankful for garbagemen (and all the other “invisible” people doing the “dirty jobs” that make life comfortable).

I can learn from this.

There’s the fact that the workers paused for a moment, instead of rushing on because they had work to do.

I can learn from this.

There’s the grandmother (she’s holding the camera) who is obviously being so intentional about raising her grandson.

I can learn from this.

Everyday (well, maybe not EVERY day) when I’m focused on Jesus. When I’m focused on love. When I’m trying to act out Philippians 4:8, — “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is purewhatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” — I realize I still have a lot to learn. But when it comes to growing me up, God is giving, and fun, and inspiring, and surprising, and patient.

I can learn from this.
