Recently I noticed something really amazing about my little girl – in her eyes all are equal! Everyone and everything is beautiful. She is unaware of what ‘ugly’ is; forget classifying someone or something so! There’s no rich, no poor.. No one too important (except mommy and dada of course!), no one less important! She’s always generous with her smiles. She never hesitates to wave her hands to our watchman, postman, little children on the street, beggars at the church entrance or random strangers on the road!
While I’m cautious about who she befriends, I also figured there’s a huge lesson I need to learn! Though not intentionally, I often (subconsciously) categorize people based on who they are, what they do, how the look, etc. But when God and little children look at everyone as equal, who am I to classify or categorize people.

There are seven million!”

There really is something wonderful in every person and every thing, if only we learn to look through the eyes of a child!
