I believe that God is present in my life, my heart, and in my very being. I believe most people believe that as well. I may choose to ignore his voice, or simply tune God out. I may insulate God’s warmth, or create a veil so God’s presence can only be seeen dimly, but God is there. When I look in the mirror no matter how veiled, how insulated, I can see God in my face. I recognize him.
This truth requires me to also recognize him and acknowledge his presence not only in my family and friends, but also in my enemies and those I’d normally deem unworthy. God is just as present in their faces as he is in mine. Thus we must treat and respect them as we treat and respect God.
