Who they Used to Be

I remember building house forts and walking to school with my little sister. I remember her drama with boys in middle school and conversations about who we wanted to be when we grew up. It’s hard to look at her now as just my little sister, but the thing is, she’s so much more.

It’s so easy to look at people as who they were instead of who the could be.

Jesus told them, “A prophet has little honor in his hometown, among his relatives, on the streets he played in as a child.
— The Bible

Even Jesus was looked down upon by the people who saw him growing as a child. It’s bad habit to fall into, but it’s so easy to do it. I have decided to look at my sister as a bold woman tackling the social issues of our time. I never want my outlook on someone to diminish their potential in the world.

Who do you look at as who they were?
