Lord Jesus,
it is said that our eyes
are the windows of our soul;
by merely looking into our eyes,
we reveal what's inside us -
fear and courage,
doubts and certainties,
questions and answers,
anxieties and joys,
hatred and love and hopes.

Your words today make me
examine what is in our eyes
when we look?

All those who sat in the Sanhedrin looked intently at him (Stephen) and saw that his face was like the face of an angel.

Acts 6:15

Lord Jesus,
so many times
troubles happen among us
just because of the way we look
at each other,
or simply,
the way we look at things
when we take ordinary ones
so seriously
and look at the more important ones
as so simple and ordinary;
worst, O Lord,
is when we keep on "looking" for You
without looking at Your essence
but merely looking at what You have
and whatever You can give.

Teach us,
dear Jesus,
to focus our eyes
into looking at Your lovely
gaze filled with love
and mercy,
compassion and
and kindness,
the look of the eyes
who truly care
and see beyond
what's on the surface.
Amen.
