Ya know you meet these guys and gals every day of the week and you just never recognize it.
I sometimes wish that we had God's Eyes.
With God's Eyes we could see the hopeless old alcoholic as a young man who served his country proudly and when the bottle took him, never asked for a penny, choosing instead to sleep on an iron heating grate.
We could see the frantic single mother of five, desperately trying to keep her children quiet in church so that they wouldn't disturb "proper folk", as a young bride with a dream which died on the day when her husband left her to face an empty apartment.
We could see the guy who gives up his time off to mow the church lawn as more than unskilled labor.
We would understand the "Widow's Mite" and comprehend the dirty, smelly "Prodigal Son" and feel like the "Tax Collecter" who beat his breast and humbly said "God...be merciful to me...a sinner".
And we could feel the stares of the men who brought the woman caught in adultry before "His Highness" and we could EXAULT with her as she heard the stones dropping and saw those sorry, hard eyed old hypocrites leaving one by one, starting with the eldest.
And then, when her timid human eyes looked up to her last accuser, she was transfixed by a gaze from the Eyes of God who saw her as an unsung hero.
Why was she a hero?
Just like all the examples I have cited, God uses them to save...
Watch out this Christmas season for the unsung heros.
They're a LOT closer than you think.
