I know I’m a little biased, but I think she did such a great job:)
(It’s just a two-minute devotional, a different person shares thoughts each day and today was Elle’s day.)
If you don’t have the Come Follow Me app yet, I’d highly recommend it. We have been using it each morning for scripture study and we are loving it. It looks like this:
Elle’s story reminds me of the couple questions I asked on Instagram a week or so ago:
I got some of the best answers.
These are a couple screenshots of some of the factors causing division (I don’t know how to show all of them…and I wish I did, because there are some great ones!)
I will still try to screenshot and write down a larger catch from more people, but for now I wanted to talk about what people thought was the biggest antidote.
And really, again, there were so many good answers but I think they could all boil down to this:
The antidote to division in our world is “seeing people.”
Getting to know their stories. Everyone has one.
We are all coming from different places.
Just like Elle’s example of getting to know her neighbor with the yapping dogs.
When we seek to LISTEN, and to really get to know people, we learn to LOVE them.
Even people who are so different from us. Because we realize we’re all vulnerable. We all have our own stories. We’re all dealing with something. We’re all in this together.
And I think that’s such a beautiful thing.
Thanks Elle, for teaching our little family lesson today! Love you forever.
