Knowing Others

                         I love this quote and how it puts the problem of a lack of true fellowship into a few simple words.  I  struggle with not being able to talk to people in the way I want to.  Superficial talk is polite but it is no substitute for real conversation.  I'm guilty too, so I'm not pointing any fingers.
                         I like to have people over for visits because it is easier to talk/hear in a quieter surrounding.  I do think about people that I see often and I'd like to know on a deeper level.  One reason I like my church family is the communication isn't limited to the usual 'How are you? Fine' scenario.  We all have joys and trials that we want to share with one another.
                        Challenge your own thoughts by asking yourself, ''Who do I look at, yet never see?'  When we get to know others personally, both parties will benefit.  It is better to be looked at than over looked.
