Something to think and pray about this week

Reverence

A reverent person looks at everyone with a deep sense of respect: with enough distance to allow people to be free to be themselves, and with enough closeness to be filled with wonder at the hidden mystery. Reverence is an excellent antidote to self-absorption because a reverent person marvels so much at the wonder of what they encounter that they have little time to think of themselves. Helen Keller once said that ‘the only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.’
