I have been reading the book, Outlive Your Life, by Max Lucado. In the book Lucado asks a simple but powerful question: Do you see through people or into people? This question has been challenging me all week to examine how I interact and communicate with the people around me.

This book has caused me to wonder just how many opportunities I have missed to connect with others more deeply and to truly serve them.
