God is Giving Me An

Interest in People

Realizing that God's highest purposes for my life have to do with the human beings He has placed around me.

I am profoundly interested in people, because this is the Second Greatest Commandment. I find each new personality has some unique quality which enriches my experience and love for God.

I meet people easily and enjoy each new association. My deep sincerity puts people at ease and stimulates their confidence, because in my love for them, they see Christ.

My primary life goal is to present everyone mature in Christ (Col. 1:28).

As a non-archist, I am less concerned with things and organizations and more with human beings created in the Image of God.

Because Christ gave His life for people, people make me more:

  • sympathetic
  • congenial
  • agreeable
  • pleasant
  • friendly
  • neighborly
  • philanthropic
  • supportive
  • warm
  • kind
  • sociable
  • good-humored.
  • considerate
  • empathetic
  • understanding

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
