My Hands, Your Hands

what-are-you-doing-todayI visited a downtown store in a different city, and I marveled at the diversity and the intricacies of the items. It was a nonprofit store that supported people from around the world. The profits of the handmade gifts were given back to the organizations in those areas of the world. As I looked at the beauty of the items, I thought about the hands that made each one.

Hands of different sizes, colors, and ages. Hands with different experiences.

I wondered what was going on in the heart of each person. What were his or her daily challenges and struggles, dreams, and living conditions? Who did they come in contact with on an everyday basis? How healthy were they living – physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually?

I looked at my own hands.

What am I doing with them today?

What am I capable of?

Is there a gap between my capability and actions?

What about you?
