I carry a burden and a guilt and a joy for people.....you in particular.
- The burden is that I am convinced people don't know their own value. From the homeless to the celebrity (and I have dealt with both a lot), there is a clear sense of self-disappointment. I live to tell people in some way of their value. Many have helped me through my own self-disappointment by believing in me when I felt to be a sure and lousy failure.
- The guilt is I really, really, really love people. Relationships snowball for so many deserve to know of their extreme value to my heart. I live to spread this word. However, calendar and health and family and increasing people-connections are causing me to notice I am slacking in the upkeep of most significant relationships. This is a new zone for me and I don't like it. All people are far too important to cause any to feel ignored. Thus, sure guilt.
- The joy is over-the-top awesome. I know incredible people. Some preach, some have small group clusters, others are business people up and down my streets. I believe in people; not just who they are but who they will clearly become because of the large grace and huge mercy of God within them. I am proud of people.
