Strategic eye contact

Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.”

Luke 7:44

The Lord Christ turns to one person and speaks to another.  This may seem like a trashing of the highly recommended way to speak with people.  Presence, eye contact  and responsiveness are part of good communications.  Here the Lord wants to direct Simon’s eyes to look where he is looking.  Strategic as this may be in this case, it is a supremely great thing to see what Christ see.  The sight holds out opportunities to be good,  gracious, generous, and kind.  Eye contact, with or without strategic intent, has purpose.

making up my mind what to eat and drink and what to say

whether to be sober or just dance and play

all across my neighbourhood

people are calling bad things good

rating foolish things as wise

turn people into merchandise
good news in the city these days hard to find

people so let down they're literally blowing their minds

Shake the tree

shake the tree, see if leaves and fruit will fall

oh no! with deep roots producing won't stall

lace up your boots, climb before it gets too late

stop looking down, time for our eyes to elevate
